Will Kimbrough plays a lot of music. As an Alabama native living in Nashville, he zig zags the world singing songs and playing guitars, often solo, but also in many other collaborations. When not touring Will spends his days writing songs, producing artists, recording music in a studio, being creative with band members and spending time with his family.
Opening for Will Kimbrough is Count & Black.
The roots of the Mountain Grass Unit go especially deep for Birmingham teenage pickers Drury Anderson (guitar, mandolin and drums) and Luke Black (guitar, banjo and drums). They have been collaborating as songwriting and performers since their early grammar school years. Their acoustic and electric duo, The AndBlack Band, has played music festivals, private functions and multiple music venues both locally and regionally, playing bluegrass, country, jazz and rock. With the addition of Sam Wilson on upright bass, to form the Mountain Grass Unit, Luke and Drury now have the firm foundation to take on not only the vocal harmonies of traditional bluegrass tunes, but also the freedom to adapt songs from their rock repertoire to an all-acoustic format. Aside from their original songs, all three are equally comfortable restyling a Jimmy Martin number, a classic Grateful Dead tune or covering contemporary acoustic masters like Billy Strings. The youthful exuberance and energy they bring to the stage is always remarkable. Their competency at what they do was best described by Birmingham music promoter Steve Masterson when the boys performed at his Acoustic Café festival: “They don’t just play good for their age, they play good. Period”. Sam, Luke and Drury are excited to share with their audiences this new and exciting musical chapter.
