Grasstowne has announced that they will henceforth be represented by the Andrea Roberts Agency.
Band leader Alan Bibey had been managing their dates, but told us that with their 2013 schedule picking up, he wants to turn booking over to someone who can devote more energy to the task. They join Ronnie Reno and Flatt Lonesome on the Roberts Agency roster.
Andrea has a long history in bluegrass, both as an artist rep and a performer. She did a memorable stint with Special Consensus on bass and vocals, appearing on their 1998 album, Our Little Town. Before that, she was a founding member of Petticoat Junction, along with Gena Britt, Gail Rudisill and Robin Roller. Back in the early days of The Grascals, with whom her husband Danny plays mandolin, Roberts booked the band.
Bibey is stoked to be working with Andrea, and tells us to expect some more big Grasstowne news this Fall.
