A note to all of our friends...

2020 has been a challenging and difficult year for many of us.  We sincerely hope you have been able to remain healthy and prosperous.  We have been rehearsing all along, on the back porch, in the livingroom with masks on and windows open.  2021 looks like things will turn for the better, which is great news for live music.  Please look for us during the summer and fall.  In the meantime, stay well...

Welcome to MicroGrass

Americana Music at its Very, Very Best...

We play a tasty blend of Americana and bluegrass music for festivals, clubs, and private events (with a bit of Cajun flavor thrown in just for fun.) Our sweet soaring harmonies are all distilled to their high energy, foot-stomping best. Nothing makes us happier than to get you involved, tapping your feet, singing a tune with us, and leaving you wanting more. We are on time, every time, and see our role as entertainers who your patrons or concert-goers for an enjoyable afternoon or evening.

We take pride in donating a portion of our performance income to our favorite not-for-profit organizations. It's nice to give back, yes?

What Others Are Saying...

"MicroGrass brings a rare charm and quality to concerts, in my experience.  It is always a delight to work with prompt, professional musicians who are as attentive to their business as they are to their art.  I believe them to be the quintessential Colorado band: alway fun, deeply talented, and invested in the health of their community."

A Warm Summer Afternoon in Denver


The best way to get to know us is to hear us live, so we have some short takes recorded at various places and at various times for you.  No studio gimmicks, no second takes. "Gone At Last" is always a showstopper. "Born to Be With You" is an upbeat vocal song with a subtle Cajun feel. Gordon had a little fun with "Angel from Montgomery," the John Prine classic. We're still trying to figure out how Gordon remembered all the words to "I've Been Everywhere."   "Lincoln Town" and "White Freightliner" are nods to traditional bluegrass music, with up-tempo driving vocals.
