The Dirty Grass Players
The Dirty Grass Players
Bluegrass/Newgrass from Baltimore, MD

Turning ​​heads ​​while ​​showcasing​​ original​ ​bluegrass ​​and ​​newgrass ​​tunes ​​such ​​as​ ​“Mohegan Sun”, ​​The​ ​Dirty ​​Grass ​​Players​ ​bring ​​a ​​solid ​​performance ​​from​ ​a ​​group ​​of ​​musicians ​​
that come​ ​from​ ​diverse ​​backgrounds,​ ​but ​​have ​​one ​​similar ​​interest ​​in ​​playing ​​for ​​the ​​love ​​of music.

Emerging ​​from​ ​the​ ​storied​ ​bluegrass​​ scene​​ in ​​Baltimore ​​is ​​The ​​Dirty ​​Grass​ ​Players ​​who, with ​​their​ ​recently ​​released ​​self-titled​ ​debut ​​album,​ ​are ​​keeping ​​alive​ ​the ​​rich​ ​tradition ​​of progressive ​​bluegrass.
​​Their ​​music ​​straddles​ ​the ​​gap ​​between​​ the​ ​traditional ​​and ​​the modern ​​with ​​an ​​infectious,​ ​forward-thinking ​​sound ​​that ​​can ​​easily ​​move ​​from​ ​a ​​simple, sweetly ​​picked​​ tune ​​to ​​an ​​adventurous, ​​inspired​ ​jam.​
​Their ​​debut​ ​album,​​ ​The ​​Dirty Grass​ ​Players​, ​​is ​​the ​​perfect ​​representation ​​of ​​this ​​dynamic ​​musical ​​palate.
The ​​Dirty ​​Grass ​​Players - ​​Ben ​​Kolakowski ​​(Guitar), ​​Ryan Rogers ​​(Mandolin), ​​Colin ​​Rappa​ ​(Bass),​ ​Alex​ ​Berman ​​(Banjo), Alex​ ​Tocco ​​(Violin) ​​- came​ ​together ​​following ​​a​​ series ​​of informal ​​picking ​​sessions ​​in ​​2015 ​​that​ ​eventually​ ​gave​ ​birth ​​to ​​the ​​band. ​​Since​ ​then ​​the band​ ​has​ ​quickly ​​garnered​ ​some ​​serious ​​attention ​​winning ​​the ​​2017​ ​Charm ​​City Bluegrass ​​Festival ​​Battle ​​of ​​the ​​Bands.​​ They ​​have ​​also ​​shared ​​the ​​stage ​​with ​​musical luminaries ​​including​ ​Larry ​​Keel, ​​Donna​​ the​​Buffalo, ​​Fruition, ​​and​ ​the​ ​Cris​ ​Jacobs ​​Band. They have​ ​appeared​ ​at ​​such ​​festivals ​​as ​​Camp ​​Bluegrass,​​ Sleepy ​​Creek ​​Spring​ ​Dig, ​​Great Folkgrass ​​Happenstance,​​ KarmaFest,​ ​and​ ​the ​​Charm​​ City ​​Bluegrass​ ​Festival.
