Greg Blake and Real Country

Friday, August 2, 2019

“Country” will always be at the foundation of Greg Blake’s interpretations of songs and lyrics. Even classical voice training in college did not deter him from continuing in the rich traditions of Appalachian twang that you’ll hear underlying his phrasing, and though Greg loves bluegrass, and considers himself a bluegrass singer, those audiences not as familiar with Monroe and Flatt love to hear the warmth, resonance and clarity when Blake delivers a ballad.

Having the privilege of traveling and performing with several different musicians, young and old, near and far, famous and yet to be discovered, Blake has found a stellar group of young musicians that have the same interest in and passion for preserving, promoting and performing an interesting marriage of musical genres. Greg, Nico, Miles and Isaac will be seen at any given time, traveling literally around the world performing a 45-50 minute set of blistering and/or mournful traditional bluegrass, and then turn around and dawn a Telecaster, sit down at the pedal steel and deliver an hour long set of Cash, Haggard, Jones and Buck Owens classic country music that will bring back memories of AM radio and Saturday night dances.
