Get ready for an extravaganza of American roots music with "Browngrass & Wildflowers, the Troupe," featuring some of the Ohio Valley's most talented musicians in this genre.

Browngrass & Wildflowers started as a CD concept by David Rhodes Brown, utilizing his own songwriting and the talents of 39 other seasoned musicians. During the production of the CD, Brown realized there was a need to make his endeavor more than just a one-time recording and created "the Troupe" in order to take American music on a regional mission of good, old-fashioned, foot-stomping fun.

The Troupe currently features western swing, country, folk, bluegrass, blues, hillbilly jazz and honky-tonk music by:

  • Greg "Tex" Schramm, seasoned Cincinnati drummer and member of the rockabilly band The StarDevils and western swingers The Sidecars.
  • Bluebird Special, consisting of Raiford and Sadie Faircloth of the regionally renowned The Modulators. Their roots go back to Tennessee, Raiford's father being Charlie "Peanut" Faircloth of Decca recording fame.
  • Al and Alice White, from the world renowned McLain Family Band. Their travels covered all 50 states and 62 foreign countries working with the top names in bluegrass.
  • Bob Lucas, songwriter, actor, singer & multi-instrumentalist has worked with international recording stars such as Alison Krauss, New Grass Revival and Sam Bush. Bob has performed at festivals all across the U.S and Canada.
  • David Rhodes Brown, known for his velvety gravel voice, non-pedal lap steel prowess and signature guitar licks for over 40 years. He is joined onstage by members of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

The Troupe is an evolving project, with act members contributing to each other's sound, and sometimes substituting other groups. (In the past, Cincinnati's popular groups Magnolia Mountain and Shiny and the Spoon have shared the stage.)

Booking The Troupe

Browngrass & Wildflowers, The Troupe is designed to play larger and unusual venues, however, smaller versions of the act are available for more traditional settings.

Browngrass can be booked as a regular band consisting of David Rhodes Brown, Raiford and Sadie Faircloth, John Schmidt and Greg Schramm with a possible fiddle and mandolin player thrown in if needed, or as a simple trio with David, Raif and Sadie.

No matter which version you see, this group is guaranteed to please! Contact us to book Browngrass & Wildflowers, The Troupe!
