Blazing tempos, outlaw attitude, foot-stomping intensity, acoustic wizardry. These things all accurately describe Grandpa’s Cough Medicine’s tongue in cheek approach to bluegrass music. Carving out a niche that is all their own, they include humor and dark subject matter in their lyrics, yet are fully capable of letting their musicianship do the talking with instrumental compositions. The band is a nuclear powered freight train led by powerful flat picked guitar, hard driving bluegrass banjo, shredding mandolin, twin harmony vocals and thumping upright bass. Their first CD Jailbird Blues was lauded in their original hometown of Jacksonville, Fla., as one of the “Top Ten Local Albums of 2011″, and their second album The Murder Chord was released in August of 2012 to high acclaim.
