Friday Tonic Presents: Kentucky Cow Tippers

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. This event takes place in the foyer space from 5:30pm to 7pm. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed. We need your card details to store the event information in your profile, but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny.
