Modern Grass Quintet, a high-energy, risk-taking contemporary bluegrass band based in Northern Vermont. Come see them play at Palmer Street Coffeehouse on Friday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. The group was formed in 2009 and comprises current and former members of Breakaway, Bluegrass Gospel Project, The Cider House Boys and PossumHaw. MGQ has performed in concert throughout our region, including appearances at the Champlain Valley Folk Festival, the Valley Stage Music Festival, the Schroon Lake (NY) Arts Council, Palmer Street Coffee House (NY) and First Night Burlington.
"In addition to being great musicians, the members of the band create a natural swing which makes them stand out among many pickers. Great music, and it'll make you want to jump!"
- Robert Resnik, host of Vermont Public Radio's All the Traditions
