Songs of heartbreak are a country music staple, so join the High & Wides for a cry-in-your-beer, Valentine’s-eve celebration of relationships gone wrong.
With their big, driving sound rooted in mountain musical traditions re-imagined for a new century, the band writes tunes about hourly motels and dystopian love (among other fare), so they’ll be sure to have plenty of them on hand to play!
Formed on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in 2015, the High & Wides draw from their members’ extensive backgrounds in bluegrass and take the music to a place all their own, recalling an era when old-time, rockabilly, and proto-rock’n’roll coexisted under the vague title “hillbilly music”.
Following the Billboard bluegrass top-ten debut success of their 2018 recording, Lifted, the band released their follow-up album, Seven True Stories, in December 2019, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart.
Members are Marc Dykeman (guitar, vocals), Sam Guthridge (banjo, mandolin, vocals), Nate Grower (fiddle), and Mike Buccino (bass).
