23 String BandLouisville, Ky -- The 23 String Band will celebrate the release of their second album Catch 23 with a CD Release Party at Headliners Music Hall in Louisville, KY, on Sept. 16 at 9PM (doors at 8). Admission is $10. Call 502-584-8088 or click for more information.

The 23 String Band are the 2011 winners of the RockyGrass Band Competition held every July at the RockyGrass Festival on Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, CO. They competed through two rounds in a field of 12 bands. As winners, 23SB will be opening the 2012 RockyGrass Festival on Friday, July 27.

The 23 String Band pay homage to the deep roots of American traditional music, while pushing forward with genre-bending, hard-driving originals and distinctive arrangements. Their new CD has received radio airplay on folk, Americana and bluegrass shows across the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. It is available for purchase online at CD Baby.

Their youthful brand of "original hillbilly music" weaves in and out of old-time, bluegrass, acoustic roots and anything else that strikes their fancy — it's not uncommon to hear a Beastie Boys cover by these boys.

Notable past performances include the Master Musicians Festival, the Forecastle Festival,
the International Bluegrass Museum's ROMP, the Terrapin Hill Harvest Festival, the
Kentucky Bluegrass Music Festival, the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the Bluegrass on the Bay Festival in Montana and the Beartrap Summer Festival in Wyoming. Other previous highlights include the 2009 Rhythm & Roots Reunion in Bristol, Virginia, and the 2009 Mountain Heritage Literary Festival in Harrogate, Tennessee.

It's a contagious conglomeration that's entertaining and energetic, and will get you on your feet and dancing every time! "The 23 String Band is the best band to come out of Eastern Kentucky in a long while. Their shows are electrifying, their songwriting is top-notch, and their vocals are as tight as the cork in a jug of moonshine. They're my favorite band from the region."
—Silas House, bestselling author.
