Many of todays bluegrass bands have players that have listened to music other than bluegrass, but these influences show themselves in the tunes being converted to bluegrass tunes. The High & Wides weave their influences directly into the fabric of the music. NO DEPRESSION. The High & Wides, like the large-haul trains for which the band is named, project a big, driving soundmountain musical traditions re-imagined for a new century. Formed on Maryland's Eastern Shore in 2015, they write music about arson and hourly
motels, dystopian love songs, and ballads of violent history. The High & Wides draw from their members' extensive backgrounds in bluegrass and take the music to a place all their own, recalling an era when old-time, rockabilly, and proto-rock'n'roll coexisted in a murky soup of hillbilly string band music. Members include Marc Dykeman (guitar, vocals), Sam Guthridge (banjo, mandolin, vocals), Nate Grower (fiddle), and Mike Buccino (bass).
