is a group of four friends who have been playing Appalachian Mountain music
together for nearly a decade.
Grain was formed in October 2010, but the band’s members are veterans
of many other groups
– including Appalachian Alchemy, Summer Reign, The Rounders, and
Sweetwater, to name a few.
Influenced by styles ranging from bluegrass and blues to gypsy jazz and
grunge, Grain blends tight vocal harmonies with precise instrumentals to
perform original songs and high lonesome arrangements of American classics.
Grain is: Ben J. (mandolin/vocals), Cory K. (guitar), Cory N. (banjo),
and Caleb T. (bass/vocals).
