Nick Dumas

Longstaff House has been trying to wrangle a show with our good friend, Nick Dumas, for a few years. And now the stars have aligned, both of our schedules have allowed a match! Nick is bringing his excellent friends, guitarist Chris Lucquette and bassist Andrew Knapp to entertain our Longstaff House audience. These kids are on the front line of the Chris Thile – Billy Strings – Molly Tuttle new generation of killer pickers. We enthusiastically invite you to come and see them!

One of the top emerging artists in bluegrass, Nick Dumas is one of the most diverse singular talents in the industry today.

Nick, born and raised in Washington State, was raised in a musical family and constantly surrounded by music. Nick first cut his bluegrass chops with his family band Three Generations. Nick later stepped out with other musicians and founded the high energy group Northern Departure, and subsequently co-founded the band North Country. In 2014, Special Consensus, one of the most prominent bands in bluegrass, hired Nick as one of their lead singers and mandolin player. Nick toured the globe with Special Consensus and recorded two albums, including one album that was nominated for a Grammy and also won the IBMA “Album of the Year” award in 2018.

In 2019, Nick put out his first album independently which received rave reviews and spent a significant amount of time on the bluegrass radio charts. In Spring 2022, Nick, recently signed with Skyline Records, releasing his second album titled “Details,” demonstrates Nick’s musical diversity, maturity, and composing ability. Further, “Details” contains a roster of heavy hitting musicians and songwriters.

Montana has a strong Bluegrass community, and this is the time of year that top-shelf Bluegrass bands come to Big Sky Country. Come to Longstaff House and be a part of the fun on Thursday, May 30th.
