The Union Street is thrilled to announce that The Modern Grass will be returning to our stage for one night only, Saturday, May 25th!
Nearly 4 years after the release of ‘City Ghosts’, The Modern Grass is back on the scene with their fourth studio album, ‘Payday’. Produced by award-winning duo Tom Terrell and Karl Falkenham, Payday is an homage to the simplicity and modesty of traditional music and living, Modern Grass style. This colorful and polarized collection of original and traditional songs taps into the rich vein of North American roots music, songwriting, and musicianship. Payday features a special cast of guest musicians, curated not only for their sounds but for their critical places in the lineage of roots music. Payday, as per usual for the MG, is paradoxical. Featuring Terrell’s clever and down-home songwriting as well as unique renditions and twisted interpretations of folk, country, gospel, blues and old time classics. While the genre seemingly remains in flux, the MG paints a coherent, vibrant picture that is everything we’ve come to expect from the grass, and more.
