‘One of the hottest new up-and-coming bluegrass bands.’
Flats and Sharps are a four-piece bluegrass outfit from Penzance, Cornwall. Delivering energetic, enthusiastic and spirited Bluegrass to audiences all around the world, Flats and Sharps have been performing their unique take on this music for over eight years. Their shows include a wide variety of influences, from a fresh and modern outlook on foot-stomping Bluegrass material through to their powerful and well-crafted original songs, with beautiful moments everywhere in between.
Their music perfectly blends strong harmonies and stonking solos, their incredible stage presence and energy create an evening that’ll have you dancing, laughing and singing along in no time. Over their time together, the band have made their presence known all around the world, including multiple tours in Australia, Europe and around the UK.
I recommend seeing Flats and Sharps at the earliest opportunity. If you can prove your disappointment, I’ll personally send you a cash refund. Mark Ellen, R2 (Rock n Reel) Magazine
The picking is exhilarating, the harmony vocals precise. You can but admire. Fred Deller, Mojo (4 star ‘King of My Mind’ review)
Is the grass in the West Country blue? How else would a group of English musicians have achieved such a mastery of the American form? Instrumental virtuosity is usually reserved for hot hands from across the Atlantic, but Flats and Sharps can stand toe-to-toe with the Americans. A very talented bunch. Joe Boyd, Producer and Writer
What a fab session for us in Port Isaac boys! You were bloody brilliant and had the crowd jumping. Put us old gits to shame. John Lethbridge, Fisherman’s Friends
(Dont let the singing fool you, they really are from Penzance!)
