“Progressive Bluegrass quartet on a mission to save the world.”
– The Flip Side
Still Hand String Band is a four-piece progressive jamgrass machine, instilling their hand into the future of bluegrass music. Hailing from the coal region of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Still Hand plays a wide variety of original and cover material leaving no genre of music untouched. Their heap of originals, although bluegrass at heart, are influenced by rock, jazz, country, psychedelia, reggae, classical compositions, and other traditional and untraditional styles. Lyrical content ranges from songs about the open road, riding the American railroad drunk in a boxcar, strong whiskey, fast women, and an angry dinosaur named Harold. With all four members coming from very different musical backgrounds, none of which being bluegrass, they have found a sound that you cant quite put a name on, other than spazzmatic schizophrenic bluegrass. SHSB has a knack for taking the songs of yesteryear and revitalizing them with a modern twist and a youthful vigor.
