With Danny on guitar, Southern Grass continues the family tradition by adding Danny’s son Ryan on mandolin. Southern Grass also includes Mark Delaney (formerly with The Country Gentlemen) on banjo, Doug Meek from York County on fiddle, and Eric Troutman from Gratz on bass. Eric is known for his driving bass playing along with his fine lead and tenor singing.

Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass play powerful and intense traditional bluegrass. Danny’s lead vocals have many prominent musicians, including Alison Krauss, considering him as one of their favorite singers.

Danny grew up listening to the music that his father played. He enjoyed hearing the sounds of classic bluegrass like Red Allen, Mac Martin, Bill Monroe, and The Stanleys, as well as old-time music and traditional country music. Danny lists George Jones and Vern Gosdin as major influences in his singing.

Appearing with Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass will be Chester Johnson & The Foggy Mountain Grass along with Scott Eager.
