Danny Paisley & Southern Grass visit Fivepointville
Bob Paisley, the founder of Southern Grass, passed away on 2004. Since then then his son, Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass have made their own niche in the bluegrass world. They are an national and international touring band who have earned several IBMA nominations for Emerging Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year.
With Danny Paisley 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 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, consider 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, The Stanleys as well as old time music and traditional country music. Once you hear Danny sing, it will come as no surprise that he lists George Jones and Vern Gosdin as major influences in his singing.
