Never miss another 'Monroes Revenge' show
British Bluegrass music at it's very best.
A band with twenty-two years experience of playing hard driving classic bluegrass music are touring with their finest ever line-up.
Monroe's Revenge is one of the most popular bluegrass bands working in Britain today. They play raw, rootsy, traditional bluegrass, aiming to capture the raw energy of the early pioneers – Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt and Scruggs – and apply it to more recent songs. Ballads of bad men and murder, heartache and loneliness, trains, planes and rabbit hunting are interspersed with hard-driving virtuoso instrumentals from fiddle, banjo and mandolin.
Band founder Roger Blackbourn (banjo) is celebrating a quarter of a century of Monroe’s Revenge. The current line-up, considered by many to be the best ever, includes lead singer and guitarist Dave Plane, himself a veteran performer as a solo artist since the 1960s, demon hippy mandolinist Joe Hymas, fiddler Richard Partridge and Dick Embery on double bass.
