Los Angeles "newgrass" septet Old Man Markley has picked and fiddled their way into the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Chart and #171 on CMJ’s Top 200 with last week’s release of their sophomore album, Down Side Up.
This marks the band’s second consecutive album to debut in the top ten on the Bluegrass chart, further cementing Old Man Markley’s place as one of the genre’s best revival acts.
Melding bluegrass and elements of punk rock into a fusion that’s become known as “newgrass,” Old Man Markley transcends the norm with a fresh take on a traditional, down-home style of music with Down Side Up.
Old Man Markley will wrap up their tour with Dropkick Murphys Friday at TD Gardens before continuing on for headlining dates and a performance with Tiger Army at House of Blues in San Diego on March 28th.
