So, you’ve heard of Bluegrass, but what’s “Newgrass”? Well, it’s the affectionately coined style of music the kids in OLD MAN MARKLEY have been pioneering since 2007. Made up of nine musicians with punk rock in their hearts and traditional acoustic instruments in their hands, OLD MAN MARKLEY have adeptly bound the two genres, giving way to something fresh and exciting.
From start to finish Guts n’ Teeth showcases their irresistible twist on the genre, infusing a youthful party-first sensibility that has their crowds doing do si dos in the circle pit. From the get go the group has gained a reputation for putting on raucous, high energy sets and in their young career they’ve already played alongside Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Devil Makes Three, Against Me!, and Supersuckers. OLD MAN MARKLEY are poised to reinvent tradition and Guts n’ Teeth is the blueprint.
