Hot Rize

<p>Hot Rize has been astounding the bluegrass world with their fresh, contemporary approach to traditional music ever since their formation in 1978. The Band’s unique and progressive style of bluegrass, powerful original songs, tight-as-a-drum ensemble playing, and dynamic stage show quickly made them stars on the major festival circuit and far beyond. In 1990, Hot Rize won the first-ever International Bluegrass Association’s first Entertainer of the Year Award and in 1991 they picked up a Grammy nom for Best Bluegrass album and won IBMA Song of the Year. Since the 90’s, this all-star band has kept their legend alive by performing at only the most prestigious festivals (like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Tulluride, Bonnaroo, and GreyFox) and a few select venues.</p>
