Music on Main: Gangstagrass

Blending bluegrass and hip-hop may seem like an unlikely recipe for success, but don’t tell that to the Emmy-nominated outfit Gangstagrass. Lending their music to the FX show Justified, they are guaranteed to take Music on Main to a whole new level of intense urban twang.

Gangstagrass has toured internationally, blowing minds on main stages from SXSW to Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, with a live stage act taking full advantage of the improvisational aspects of both hip-hop and bluegrass. With two emcees trading verses, banjo, dobro, and guitar, and frequent three-part harmonies, the Gangstagrass live show has garnered a reputation among fans for its dynamism and spontaneity.
