Event Navigation

Across two decades in the performing arts, The Grandsons have embraced the music of America as their inspiration, and the Nation’s capital as their home. This year, the city has returned the gesture. The Washington Area Music Association named The Grandsons Artist of the Year and dubbed their latest recording Live at the Barns: The Legendary Wolf Trap Recordings, Volume Two roots rock Album of the Year. As their energy and notoriety increases, the band’s geographic reach extends further than ever. Recent years have found them in France and Germany representing America in cultural exchanges with the historic cities of Reims and Aachen.

A fan aptly described The Grandsons’ exuberant sound as “American music in a blender with the lid off.” This bunch finds inspiration in New Orleans street parades, high-haired rockabillies, low down blues shouters, uptown swing, downtown jazz and outskirts-of-town honky tonk country. On this foundation The Grandsons build their sometimes poignant, often hilarious songs about hitch hiking and heartbreak, mob bosses’ daughters, finding happiness on a tight budget, overly aggressive young ladies, civil engineering and supermarket tabloids.
