The Kickin Grass Band from Raleigh, NC…so much more than taking names. 2012 Winners of the Carolina Music Award for Best Bluegrass/Americana, this young and inspired ensemble rides on the edge of tradition, creating a sound equally vintage and progressive. They hold a traditional 5-piece bluegrass lineup yet draw on a muse stirred as much by Bill Monroe as by neo-traditional American folk, newgrass, southern rock or alt-country, a deep and wide river of inspiration made evident and come to life in the band’s stellar original tunes and distinctive sound.

The lineup consists of mandolinist Jamie Dawson, banjo player Hank Smith, bassist Patrick Walsh, fiddler Pattie Hopkins, and guitarist, songwriter and signature lead vocalist Lynda Wittig Dawson, a Basking Ridge native. She's a musician whom Nashville Public Radio’s Bluegrass Breakdown host Dave Higgs praises as, “a truly gifted songwriter.” Distinctive lead and harmony vocals from the quintet’s females are complimented by Walsh’s powerful tenor and Jamie Dawson’s retro-tinted baritone, while the instrumental arrangements spotlight individual virtuosity, most notably Smith’s banjo and Hopkins’s fiddle playing.

Their latest album, Walk With Me, has been described by the Raleigh News and Observer as attesting to the band’s, “Maturity as songwriters, instrumentalists and storytellers…it is intimate, inspiring and grand.”

The Ragtime Relics from Princeton...From Tin Pan Alley to the Ragtime Blues — from the Jazz Age to Early Country, our music is a blend of the traditions that helped shape American music in the early 20th Century. But we don’t take our music or ourselves too seriously. We want our audiences to have as much fun as we do, so each performance is mix of songs, stories, history and humor.

The Ragtime Relics are
Karl Dentino, guitar and vocals;
John Sudia, bass and vocals;
Ray Fyhr, fiddle and mandolin.
