I have heard so much about these guys since booking them.  Telluride and IBMA winners……….plus local band Blue Point, a big night of full-on bluegrass.

For the past 16 years, Michigan based bluegrass band, Full Cord has been making a name for themselves blending traditional bluegrass music in which they are deeply rooted with jazz, western swing, and classic rock n’ roll while keeping the traditional bluegrass feel alive and well. These influences make every performance memorable and unique.

Following a ‘22 win at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival competition and the ‘22 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Momentum Band of The Year, this band has been hot on the touring trail nationwide and love to bring their style of bluegrass back home to Michigan.

Hold on to your hats when these folks hit the stage – they are bringing their version of the bluegrass train full steam ahead.
