New album "Killer Grass"
Released 8th February 2010 on Cooking Vinyl

Free download "Norfolk Girl" – Available until Feb. 8th on
Witness you now that Appalachian Rockgrass hellraisers, Hayseed Dixie, have completed their 8th full-length studio album. "Killer Grass" is either Hayseed Dixie’s absolute greatest musical achievement or absolute worst offence yet, depending on your personal perspective! The CD DVD package contains 7 original compositions along with 6 reinterpretations of previously known songs about drinking, cheating, killing and hell - with a particular emphasis on murder and death. The DVD contains music videos for 6 songs as well as 5 instructional "tutorial" videos addressing everything from how to play rockgrass banjo, to how to hide the body. On the road on tour throughout 2010, the suspects are known to be armed with acoustic instruments and should be considered extremely dangerous.

From the fertile valley of Deer Lick Holler, deep in the heart of Appalachia, comes a sound that is old yet new. In an area completely isolated from outside cultural and musical influence, this band of acoustic musicians grew up playing the traditional music of their forefathers. Then, as fate would have it, one crisp fall afternoon a stranger passed through the holler. Well, he almost passed through.

Unfortunately for him, but fortunately for appreciators of great music worldwide, the stranger crashed his muscle car into a stately old oak tree at Devil's Elbow curve. Sadly, the stranger expired, but his legacy lives on. In the back seat of his car the boys found a box of old vinyl records as they went through his belongings looking for some identification. The name of the band on the records was AC/DC, and though all they had on which to listen to them was an old Edison Victrola that only played at 78 R.P.M., the boys all agreed that it was mighty fine country music - a bit different, but mighty fine just the same.

In memory of the stranger who had perished, the boys set about learning these new songs, injecting elements of their own traditional mountain style. And thus, from these unlikely beginnings, an entirely new musical and cultural synthesis was set in motion. Rockgrass was born. As if the Creator Himself had uttered, "Let there be Rockgrass!"

HAYSEED DIXIE are … Barley Scotch - singer, fiddle, guitar / Dale Reno – mandolin / Don Wayne Reno – banjo
