Ragged Union

Ragged Union Announced 3 Front Range January Bluegrass Shows

Ragged UnionTowards the outer edge of bluegrass, where powerful drive meets outsider songwriting –that’s where you’ll find Ragged Union. Centered around the flatpicking, singing and songwriting of guitarist Geoff Union (formerly of the Two High String Band), this particular take on the colorful bluegrass tradition combines influences such as Danny Paisley, John Hartford, and Norman Blake, along with Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe. The music has a raw energy, like a steam-powered bluegrass train, driven at full throttle, wheels coming off the inside rails around the bend and slamming down hard in the straightaway. Ragged Union has already booked three shows for January.

Ragged UnionRagged Union is Geoff Union’s traditional-minded bluegrass band, where “powerful drive meets outsider songwriting”. Centered around Union’s highflying flatpicking, singing and songwriting, this project represents his take on the colorful bluegrass tradition, and displays in unique fashion his incorporation of influences such as the singing of Danny Paisley, the songwriting of John Hartford, the sensibility and style of Norman Blake, and the intensity of 1980s Tony Rice Band.
