Whitewater Ramble Announces Spring/Summer Dates
Whitewater Ramble (WWR) has announced their first batch of Spring and Summer 2014 Tour dates. The band will hit the Southeast for the very first time in May and also is making first time appearances at several major U.S. festivals.
WWR is currently on tour behind their sophomore release Roots & Groove which was produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. The album features an array of special guests such as Andy Hall on dobro (Infamous Stringdusters), Andy Thorn on banjo (Leftover Salmon), Grammy Award winner John Macy on pedal steel, Bill McKay (Leftover Salmon, Derek Trucks Band) on piano and Tim Carbone on electric guitar and vocals.
Described as "High-Octane Rocky Mountain DanceGrass", WWR uses a simple recipe to craft it's sound: start with bluegrass instrumentation, add drums, and finish with a boundary-less approach to grassing-up everything from disco house grooves to roots to Americana.
A diverse festival resume has helped bring WWR to stages at events like the Northwest String Summit, Wakarusa, Winter WonderGrass, Yonder Mountain’s Harvest Festival, Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival, 80/35 Festival, Nedfest, Bohemian Nights NewWestFest, The Wildflower Pavilion at RockyGrass and many more.
