Grass Root Ties is a southern Germany based string band playing a wide variety of American acoustic music ranging from bluegrass to acoustic country, blues and swing.
Five veterans of the European acoustic music scene on acoustic and steel-bodied guitars, mandolin, fiddle, Irish bouzouki, upright bass and 5-string banjo present an authentic and exciting show full of variety, virtuosity and entertainment.
Grass Root Ties plays as a quartet with ex-Pat American Paul Stowe and Englishman Trevor Morriss, a duo which has played together since 1986, and Germans Georg Baehr and Thomas Kaerner who have also played with Paul and Trevor in the Irish / Celtic folk band Matching Ties since 2005. Joining Grass Root Ties on occassion as a quintet is premier German 5-string banjo player Thilo Hain.
In this spin-off group from Matching Ties these excellent musicians return to their ROOTS in (blue-) GRASS and its TIES to its many related American music styles.
