Open Road…In the Life Open Road are dressed to put Traditional Country back into Bluegrass

open-road_traditional-country_bluegrass_in-the-lifeWith their white-felt hats, suits and skinny ties, the members of Open Road are dressed to put Traditional Country back into Bluegrass—which they do with great energy and style.

The band sounds as if the members could be contemporaries of Bill Monroe or the Louvin Brothers, not founded in 1998 and living in Colorado. Employing guitar, man-dolin, bass, banjo, fiddle and triple-harmonies, Open Road can traverse any country mountain ter-rain and also blaze original trails. Guitarist Bradford Lee Folk has contributed three quality songs that fit right into the old-style mix.
