"I don’t know where the bluegrass country is in Alaska, but Todd Grebe sure as hell does.  It isn’t hard to see Grebe pickin’ and singin’ in front of a single mic in the heyday of the Grand Ole Opry – his music rings with vintage country soul."
~ Dave Stallard, contributor for " Honest Tune", Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion Promoter


IBMA Success! 

 Well, a week has passed since we spent a week in Raleigh NC for the World of Bluegrass IBMA conference. It was awesome! The folks in Raleigh really showed up with some bluegrass spirit. Every restaurant we went to was playing bluegrass tunes on the loudspeaker and treating us extra nice for being a part of the bluegrass fun. We had a few great showcases with a real highlight being the one at The Architect Wednesday evening. What a great venue! We were also featured on the local News 14 that airs all over North Carolina. So that was awesome. We're looking forward to getting in touch with all those promoters that came to our showcases and getting some new gigs on the calendar so we can come to your hometown! We'll keep you posted! Here's a photo from our news broadcast.

And here's a photo from the Exhibit Hall where Josh our lawyerin' banjo player was pickin' with Robert the banjoist from Brad Lee Folk's Bluegrass Playboys. Good times and great pickin' was had by all.

Yes! We have just recorded a Brand New EP in Nashville, TN of some new original material from our fearless leader, Todd Grebe. It has that familiar bluegrass honky tonk sound that you know and love from Todd's previous releases. Be sure to find Todd and get a copy of the new EP this coming week at IBMA World of Bluegrass. And don't forget to grab a sticker for your instrument case or water bottle too! Hope to see you there!

Official Showcase at IBMA! 

Just found out that we have an Official Showcase at the International Bluegrass Music Association Conference. Many of our friends got in too including Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys. We're excited to have a chance to attend IBMA in the new location Raleigh, NC. Let the bluegrass pickin ensue.

2nd Place!! 

Todd is the proud recipient of the 2nd place prize in the Chris Austin songwriting contest at Merlefest in the Bluegrass category. There was a lot of talent in the contest, and it's an honor to be a part of it. Gillian Welch was a previous winner too! Todd has several new songs that he's looking forward to recording soon! So keep a look out for the next Cold Country record.
