Description

Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass continue to be deeply rooted in tradition, but look to the future with enthusiasm and anticipation.

Since Danny’s father Bob Paisley (founder of Southern Grass) passed away in 2004, Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass have made their own niche in the bluegrass world. Their album, The Room Over Mine, earned accolades and significant chart action, and the song, “Don’t Throw Mama’s Flowers Away” won the 2009 IBMA Award for Song of the Year.  The group has received several IBMA nominations for Emerging Artist of The Year, Male Vocalist of the Year & Album of the Year throughout the years. In 2016, Danny won the IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year award, a moment revered by his peers who gave him a standing ovation. Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass are a national and international touring band.  Their list of notable festivals and events include: Rocky Grass, Grey Fox, Grass Valley, Del Fest, Wind Gap, Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival and more.

With Danny Paisley on guitar, Southern Grass continues the family tradition by adding Danny’s son Ryan on mandolin.  He is among the next generation of up and coming pickers. Southern Grass welcomes back TJ Lundy (after a brief hiatus) as the band’s fiddler. TJ Lundy is a highly respected fiddler bridging the gap between old time fiddling and bluegrass music.TJ  is a warehouse of fiddle tunes! Southern Grass also includes:  Mark Delaney (formerly with Randy Waller and the Country Gentlemen and Darren Beachley & Legends of the Potomac) on banjo; and Eric Troutman on bass. Eric Troutman started pickin at the age of 9, when his grandfather gave him a mandolin. As a member of The Southern Grass, Eric is not only known for his driving bass playing but also for his fine lead and tenor singing.

Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass play powerful, unadorned, and intense traditional bluegrass. There is no hybrid or genre-bending music here. Their combination of instrumentation and vocals convey the energy and emotion of classic bluegrass and country music. Danny’s lead vocals will captivate your senses, so much so that many prominent musicians, including Alison Krauss, have considered Danny as one of their favorite singers.   His voice combines powerful range and soulful blues with a sound like no one else in bluegrass today.

Danny grew up listening to the music his father Bob play and enjoyed hearing the sounds of classic bluegrass like Red Allen, Mac Martin, Bill Monroe, the Stanleys, Reno and Smiley, and the Osbornes, as well as old time mountain music and traditional country music. Once you hear Danny sing, it comes as no surprise that he lists George Jones and Vern Gosdin as major influences in his singing.

Danny Paisley, born in Landenberg, PA in 1959, inherited the love and talent of this music and is proud to continue the family tradition. Gathering fans at each event, Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass look forward with renewed energy as they bring their unique sound to audiences near and far.
