Freegrass is a trio of musicians who have been called a collaborator’s dream team that just so happen to write and perform their own music on the side. The group strives to stretch the limits and wander back and forth the lines of genre all while trying to create the most beautiful music possible. As this happens, you’ll be able to hear Blake Shaw on bass, cello and vocals, Dan Padley on guitar, and Tara McGovern on fiddle. This night the trio will be joined by special guests Aviana Gedler on viola and vocals and Robert Espe on violin. 


The name “Freegrass” is inspired both by the group’s goal of being FREE of genre labels and constraints and also by blueGRASS traits such as staying true to your best self and pushing forward. 


From Felix Mendelssohn to Mel Tormé, Wheatus to Thelonious Monk, along with Dan’s originals and arrangements by Blake, Freegrass has a bit of everything! Prepare to be wide eyed one moment and the next close your eyes and reap the hypnotizing sounds that emanate from the souls of The Freegrass String Trio and guests.
