Dunderhead at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival

OK so I found another new favorite.  This is a group from Sweden, yes you saw that right all the way from Sweden to Morganton North Carolina.  Such a sweet soulful sound, I love it.  But never would have though bluegrass music would come out of Europe. Enjoy this piece.

Don't you love the sound.  Here is their web site in case you are interested in learning more about them.

And here is a small blurb from their web site:  "The group is active in Gothenburg, but consists of great musicians from different parts of Sweden. Angelina, with a reputation as Sweden’s upcoming country artist, was born and raised in Lund, where she started out playing the classical piano. Anders Ternesten who brought together The Moonshine Brothers in 2011 has a long record as band leader and solid banjo player from Gothenburg. Mikael Grund is well reputed as one of Europes greatest leadsingers in bluegrass music and he moved with his mandolin from Stöllet in Värmland down to Gothenburg. In the beginning of December 2013 the band got a new bass player as the wonderful Carl Karlsson from Småland came to join in. Finally, the young and talented guitarist Jimmy Hermansson from Trollhättan, adds the extra spice to push this band up the top ladder of what Europe has to offer in this genre."
