Flats and Sharps

Friday, 25th August 2017

Hailing from Penzance, in the South West of England, Flats and Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk, Country and Pop, performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five incredible young musicians have honed their skills in 400 live performances over five years, charming and wowing audiences along the way.
Flats and Sharps have come a long way from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds to performing on the Town Square stage at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London, at Proms in Hyde Park, London which was recorded for later broadcast on the Bob Harris Country show on BBC Radio 2. Along the way that have played for (and with) the Governor of Kentucky (who jumped on stage to play with them), won fans at scores of festivals including Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Maverick, Ireland’s Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival and many Bluegrass and Folk Festivals in Europe
Flats and Sharps are ones to watch out for, five talented young men who make friends wherever they play.
