The Kentucky Cow Tippers’ unique approach to bluegrass draws on their deep appreciation of the genre.
They’ve absorbed everything from traditional Appalachian harmonies and fiddle tunes through to the psychedlic-cum-country sounds of Old and in the Way and the Seldom Scene, as well as progressive ‘Newgrass’ by the likes of Béla Fleck and Punch Brothers. These elements – plus folk, pop, rock and jazz influences – inform their original material and renditions of bluegrass classics.
Founding songwriters Sam Wear (banjo), Rupert Hughes (guitar) and Evan Davies (mandolin) all hail from the north-east of England. This core trio are augmented by American fiddler Niles Krieger and jazz bassist Sam Quintana to create a driving, energetic quintet. Their performances feature vocal harmonies, wild bluegrass improvisation, witty stage banter – and brown corduroy jackets.
