Dirty Dead 2 – Dirty Blanket Plays Grateful Dead
TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT DOOR! Doors open at 5 PM.
Dirty Blanket have toured the American Northeast, making names for themselves on festival circuits and in cities like New York, DC, Baltimore, Burlington, and beyond. To date, they’ve shared stages with some of the highest profile names in bluegrass including Billy Strings, The Del McCoury Band, The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin Band, Kitchen Dwellers and more.
The seeds of Dirty Blanket were planted in 2013 at the meeting of guitarist Max Flansburg and singer/songwriter Kevin O’Leary. Combining an array of influence with a passion for creating original music, the two began playing as an acoustic duo, utilizing what free time their other musical projects allowed to share their latest material with audiences across Upstate NY. A few years later, regional musicians Richie Colf, Joel Fedkiw and Aaron Oldweiler were added to the roster on the mandolin, banjo, and upright bass, rounding out the band lineup as the 5-piece, fast-paced, alternative improvisational bluegrass band they are today.
Raedwald Howland-Bolton is a finger style guitarist and singer from Ithaca, NY. Playing a number of resonator guitars, he uses inspiration from blues performers to deliver an authentic and unique blend of sound and emotion. He carries the eclectic tradition of the American songster into the present with tireless effort and humility.
