Bluegrass Concert presented by the Louisville Cultural Council
About Ragged Union:
~ A national mandolin champion (Jordan Ramsey), a cult-hero songwriter (Benny Burle Galloway), an award-winning banjo player (Chris Elliott), a highly respected fiddler (Justin Hoffenberg), and a creative and driven bandleader/songwriter/singer and flatpicker (Geoff Union).
Formed in the winter of 2013, on the Front Range of Colorado, Ragged Union has made a name for itself at renowned festivals and events in the US and the UK, as an updated-traditional original bluegrass band. The music sounds of a piece with the bluegrass tradition, with modern and varied songwriting, lyrics, and arrangements that allow it a comfortable co-existence in the trad., progressive, and jam grass worlds. The band has appeared at IBMA Wide Open Bluegrass, Northwest String Summit, John Hartford Memorial Festival, Darrington Bluegrass Festival, Topanga Festival, and major UK festivals including Shrewsbury, Musicport, Didmarton and Purbeck Valley Festival.
Their second album, Time Captain, released in October, 2017. The effort features eleven original numbers, and an update of Joe Vals version of the cowboy classic, Diamond Joe. Time Captain reached #7 nationally on the Roots Music Americana radio chart, with songs covering the range from blazing-fast bluegrass romps (Diamond Joe, If You Dont Love Me), to medium stomps (Bridge on Fire), a hard-driving waltz (Leaving Town), some veritable jam grass (Half Lit Parking Lot) and even some old-time melodic songs (Moonshine Boogie and (Leaving Louisville). Maybe not something for everyone, but definitely a multi-dimensional sound that has the salt to please both young and old, listeners and dancers alike, and one that has earned critical praise for its respect of the roots and its willingness to branch out.
