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:
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.)
