ABOUT THE BAND

Formed in 2016, Hare o' the Dawg was spawned from a common love of improvisational string music.

Drawing inspiration from old-time music such as swing, bluegrass and gypsy jazz, Hare o' the Dawg has pleased crowds with original music as well as arrangements of tunes from the likes of Django Reinhardt, David Grisman, Jerry Garcia and anything with a bluegrass flavor.

Most of the band are multi-instrumentalists, and instrument swapping is a common theme of our music.

ABOUT THE BAND

Kathryn Belle Long and Mickey Abraham have emerged as two of Florida’s most accomplished acoustic performers. As members of Suncoast Emmy award-winning Belle and The Band, Long and Abraham have played their original music at many of the premier Americana/folk festivals in the Southeast and toured the East Coast as far north as Canada.

As 2018’s Will McLean Best Florida Song winner, Long is currently at the top of her game as a songwriter. Abraham’s unique approaches to arranging and teaching music have been featured in Bluegrass Unlimited and Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.

Together, Long and Abraham combine experience, creativity, and class into emotionally-driven cohesive artistic statements. The award-winning duo is currently recording a full length concept album entitled “Voices: A Folk Opera.” The project combines elements of Broadway with folk music and includes original characters, locations, storyline, and reoccurring musical themes. Long and Abraham’s talents compliment each other and their work is nothing short of folk music art.

ABOUT THE BAND

It is well known that roots music is passed down from generation to generation. From grandparents to parents and from parents to their children. The inevitable collision between the traditional past and the enormous catalogue of modern music, both spiritual and psychedelic, is the fertile plain that sprouted the roots of The Grass Is Dead. Initially formed as an acoustic offshoot of one of the country’s most beloved GD tribute bands, Crazy Fingers, The Grass Is Dead has evolved over the past ten years into a juggernaut of sound and a festival favorite up and down the east coast, to Colorado and back.

Their live performances bring into view a traditional sensibility of bluegrass, swing, and folk music launched directly onto a psychedelic paintbrush of modern influences, most importantly, the music of the Grateful Dead. Captivating audiences with their unique interpretations and thoughtful arrangements of songs by the GD, Jerry Garcia, and many others, as well as their extensive file of traditional roots music at their command, it's only a matter of time until the buzz that they have created will reach the West Coast as well. The Grass Is Dead are very much alive and well, rocking out and and picking their way across this great country.
