NewGrass Radio

Organized by JamFest

Welcome to NewGrass Radio, your premier destination for a fusion of traditional bluegrass and the innovative sounds of the new generation of artists who are pushing the boundaries of the genre. With a focus on "Music Without Rules," NewGrass Radio celebrates the rich heritage of bluegrass while embracing the spirit of experimentation and creativity.

The roots of NewGrass can be traced back to the 1970s when bands like New Grass Revival emerged, pioneering a more liberal interpretation of bluegrass music. Comprised of talented musicians including Sam Bush, Courtney Johnson, Ebo Walker, Curtis Burch, Butch Robins, John Cowan, Béla Fleck, and Pat Flynn, New Grass Revival injected new life into the genre with their innovative approach and fearless experimentation.

NewGrass Revival's blend of traditional bluegrass instrumentation with elements of rock, jazz, and folk paved the way for a new generation of artists to explore and expand upon the possibilities of bluegrass music. Their willingness to push boundaries and challenge conventions inspired countless musicians to follow in their footsteps, leading to the emergence of what we now know as NewGrass.
