Sons of Bluegrass

Sons of Bluegrass

The Sons of Bluegrass are the first professional band in the world entirely comprised of high caliber bluegrass majors from the one-of-a-kind bluegrass music program at East Tennessee State University. After several years of nationally touring and performing at some of the largest bluegrass festivals in the country, The Sons, who are returning to Bear for the third consecutive year, are quickly becoming one of the most sought after bands in the genre, and the group has worked, performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in bluegrass music.

The Sons are working with award-wining guitarist and songwriter Tim Stafford as their personal mentor as they hone their craft. The group has been featured in Bluegrass Today several times, was awarded the 2012 Arts Build Communities Grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission, and was recognized at the 2012 championship bluegrass band by the State of North Carolina.
