Grandpa's Cough Medicine is a 3 piece original outlaw bluegrass band based out of Jacksonville, FL. Their sound blends the blazing tempos, harmony vocals and hot acoustic pickin' bluegrass is known for with the more outlaw lyrical approach of folks like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams III. Furious flatpicked guitar, blazing banjo runs, 2 part harmonies and a thumping upright bass form a sound that is snare tight. They have played national festivals such as the Suwanee Springfest, Magnoliafest, Gamble Rogers Folk Fest, Stringbreak, The Great Atlantic Seafood and Music Fest. They also keep a busy regional gigging schedule around the South East with an ever growing fan base, both young and old alike. Artists Grandpa's Cough Medicine have shared the stage with include: Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, The Traveling McCoury's, Jesse McReynolds, The David Grisman Quintet, The Mosier Brothers, The Avett Brothers, Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, Infamous Stringdusters and more. Their repertoire includes original music, many traditional bluegrass songs and instrumentals, classic country and even some rock and roll that has been given the bluegrass treatment. Book Grandpa's Cough Medicine and they will deliver the shot of hardcore bluegrass pickin' your event needs, with energy to spare.
