Westbound Situation

“…Here you have one of the most new, exciting developments
for the American String band!”
—Mike Marshall

Grant Flick, violin/nyckelharpa; 
Jake Howard, mandolin/octave mandolin; 
Zachary Brown, cello; 
Jacob Warren, double bass

Blending the precision of classical chamber music with the rhythmic drive of bluegrass and the improvisatory expression of jazz, Westbound Situation has created a new style of chamber music which they describe as “chambergrass.” Kerrytown Concert House is delighted to welcome Westbound Situation back to its stage this Spring to premier a new four movement original work! The group will also feature selections from their latest album “Accord.”

The members’ backgrounds in classical chamber music, jazz, and various fiddling styles come together in their compositions so that throughout the evening you will experience beautiful melodies, colorful harmonies, and driving rhythms. Westbound Situation is passionate about writing music that is both innovative for a stringband and deeply rooted in tradition. The members are connected by a commitment to the highest level of chamber playing and communicative improvisation expressed seamlessly in their entirely memorized arrangements.

You won’t want to miss what is sure to be a captivating and inspiring performance by these immensely talented musicians in KCH’s intimate setting!
