Grasstowne has announced that Travis Greer will be joining the group on bass and harmony vocals.
At 24 years of age, Travis has already spent several years playing bluegrass music, having grown up around the music and playing in church. His family has already produced two fine young bluegrass talents, Keith and Kevin McKinnon (now with Carrie Hassler & Hard Rain), and Travis will have a chance to prove himself with Grasstowne in 2009.
Travis has also played bass for Michelle Nixon & Drive.
Grasstowne mandolinist Alan Bibey says that they tried out nearly a dozen potential bass players before settling on Greer.
“We’re all real excited about Travis joining the group. He’s a great bassist and fine vocalist as well as a really good guy. We’ve already been rehearsing and everything is going so well that we’ll be going into the studio the latter half of January to finish our next Grasstowne project.
We’re looking forward to a great ’09 and also looking forward to all our friends and fans hearing Travis with the group, both in person as well as on the new project.”
