COUNTRY TROUBADOURS? FOLK TORCH-BEARERS? BLUEGRASS PURISTS?
NOT QUITE. No union cards have been punched in allegiance to the labels mentioned above,
yet the Tennessee Warblers draw inspiration from each of their time-tested pipes.
Born from the seeds planted by the acoustic music of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, the Warblers perform roots music with a rock n’ roll heart. If you were to sit an astute music fan stage front they would be quick to note rootsy originals peppered with covers ranging from blues and bluegrass standards to takes on tunes by Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead and many others. All that to say, these four musicians have a great respect for American music but come at it in a non-traditional way.
