The Bow Ties play bluegrass infused with the aggressive spirit of the original masters. The band has the precision and quality to captivate a listening audience, and a unique drive that can rowdy up any dance floor.
Band members include Northern California Bluegrass Association's five-time Guitarist of the Year, Yoseff Tucker. Billy Moore is a self-taught banjo picker with the accuracy, and more importantly, the fine understanding of improvisation. Classically-trained Jan Purat plays a fiddle that can either break your heart or pull your legs out from under you, sometimes both. Stoic and relaxed, Andrew March picks a mandolin likes nobody's business. And backing it all up with fierce rhythm is Zach Sharpe on upright bass. The combination of these talented musicians offer a refreshing, exciting and meticulous bluegrass experience.
Selected as one of the California Bluegrass Association's Showcase Bands for the 2016 Fathers Day Bluegrass Festival, the band's members have been honored to play at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Telluride and the Rockygrass Festival.
