Seagrass

 


Seagrass are an all original Tasmanian acoustic band that combines acoustic blues with bluegrass.

The music style ranges from southern Mississippi swamp music with bottleneck guitar through to hard driving Scrugg's style 5 string banjo bluegrass.

Along the way there are soulful blues melodies that engage sweet harmonies. Their goal is to develop a sound that is uniquely Seagrass.

The bottleneck guitar, flat-picking guitar and hard driving 5 string banjo are all interwoven with brilliant fiddle playing to create sounds that are unique.

Many of the arrangements are original with each of the members contributing to the tapestry of sound that is Seagrass. However there is an interesting twist of classics by Mozart & Bach along with bluegrass and Irish standards that should entertain everyone.

Steve Gale - vocals, harmonica, percussion
Tim Saunders - guitar, five string banjo, vocals.
Mark Phillips - bass, vocals.
Katherine Luttrell - fiddle, vocals.
