Grass Cats
The best bluegrass band in East Carolina celebrates the release of their ninth CD, "The Old School Road," at our last show of the season.

The Cats are breaking in their fine new guitarist, Bailey Coe, who's also sharing lead singing duties.

Fronting the band is Russell Johnson, who sings tenor and plays mandolin. Co-founder Tim Woodall plays bass; Snow Hill's own Chris Hill plays fiddle; and Rick Lafleur plays banjo.

They play traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel and also offer up some bluegrass arrangements of songs by Eric Clapton, Duke Ellington, Tim McGraw, Steve Earle.

The Cats are the only group on an independent recording label to have three singles reach #1 on Bluegrass Unlimited's national chart, and their new record is headed that way.
