BLUEGRASS DEATHMATCH - Debutants and the Matchsellers
For the first time ever, the two reigning heavyweight champions of Midwestern Bluegrass will meet in the ring for a head to head fight to the musical death. Debutants will face-up against The Matchsellers in a one-of-a-kind BLUEGRASS DEATHMATCH. In 10 boxing-style rounds, each band will try to knock the other out of musical consciousness in a musical bloodbath for the ages. Referee Dave Pagan will make sure there is no foul play and a fair match.
The rising guitar and lap steel player calls his original music “electric swamp funkin’ blues,” defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor. His gritty, unvarnished vocals draw his audience deep inside his unforgettable tales of love, passion, pain and pleasure. No other band on the current blues scene is built quite like Birchwood’s.
