What's the deal?

From hard drivin' banjo solos to four part harmony singing, blues infused mandolin breaks and hair-raising fiddle tunes, this quintet covers all the bluegrass bases. Some nights, when the moon is just so, you can even hear the wail of a lonesome dobro. 

This group has been playing together in different capacities for close to 20 years and their performances have been described as "more than fine" and "refilling my folk music cup" by audience members. The Cutups include Jess Reimer on bass, Jeremy Hamm on mandolin and fiddle, fiddler Jeremy Penner, banjo/dobro player Tim Osmond and guitarist T.J. Blair. All sing two, three and four part harmonies in a bluegrass style over original compositions and traditional numbers.

To hear them come together to perform as a bluegrass band is sure to lure fans of The Stanley Brothers, Jim & Jesse McReynolds, Bill Monroe, Hazel Dickens and others from the bluegrass canon.
