Greensky Bluegrass

Pick a handful of 2016 summer festivals at random, and Greensky Bluegrass are likely playing the majority of them. The constant touring, however, didn't effect the band's two sets, which were filled with classics ("Old Barns," "Just to Lie"), newer tunes ("Living Over," "Fixin' to Ruin"), and covers, including "Road to Nowhere" (Talking Heads), "Dancing in the Dark" (Bruce Springsteen), and the standout "Yellow Eyes" (Rayland Baxter). In the course of six years, Greensky has gone from a small name on the Delfest poster to the headliner chosen to close out the festival.
