The Greencards on Mon, February 25, 2013

From the first notes struck together in 2002 through a 31 date tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, up to and beyond their fifth studio album in 2011, The Greencards have won steadily escalating acclaim for their multi-dimensional Americana vision. Their releases have topped the Billboard Bluegrass charts. In both 2008 (for their Viridian album) and 2010 (for Fascination), they were nominated for Grammy Awards in the “Best Country Instrumental” category, and in 2006 they were named, “Best New and Emerging Artist” at the Americana Awards. They’ve earned ovations from “newgrass” music devotees at Merlefest and from indie-rock loyalists at Lollapolooza and the Austin City Limits Festival. noted “This imported band is creating some of the finest Americana around.”
