Brought together at a young age by their love of music, the Starkville, MS group, Nash Street strives to artfully bridge the gap between country music and traditional bluegrass. Winners of the 2008 Colgate Country Showdown, the band was named “Best New Act in Country Music.” Nash Street has a distinct sound, stage presence and ability to connect with varying audiences. The group utilizes the inspiration of influences such as Chris Thile, The Eagles, Ricky Scaggs, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Allison Krauss as a pleasant compliment to the soulful melodies of Mississippi and the leisurely rhythm of southern life. The quintet provides a hybrid gene which is being hailed “Grassroots Country”. The band consists of Daniel Hare on upright bass, Hannah and Caroline Melby on fiddle and mandolin respectively, Ben Mathis on rhythm guitar, and Clay Lezon on lead guitar. Suitable for audiences of all ages.
