BlueBilly Grit’s definition of bluegrass is anything but ordinary. Bluebilly Grit draws its inspiration and drive from all genres of music. You’ll hear lots of original tunes with their own unique style and sound, along with some traditional songs from artist like Bill Monroe or the Dillards, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Janis Joplin, and even some Alanis Morissette, all done BlueBilly style of course. Each member of the band has their own musical background with many performances under their belt. This past year was spent playing venues in the southeast, gaining momentum, and getting some studio work done. Their new CD, “Ready For A Change” was realeased in August of 2011 and “Mill Grinder’s Blues”, was released on November 14th, 2009. Mark Garrison plays banjo, guitar, and mandolin, Shawn Hart plays the flattop, and Amber Hollis has a voice that…well, you just have to hear it. Patrick Chisolm, the newest member of the band, is from Dahlonega, Ga. and has spent the past several years playing fiddle with some of the finest musicians in the area. He has developed his own unique style which completes the sound that makes BlueBilly Grit the high-energy band that it is. Mark, Amber, and Shawn also have that three part harmony that makes bluegrass what it is and will leave you with a new and fresh appreciation for a style of music that’s as old as the hills from which it came.
