Fret High proud to announce the addition of Josh Greene on fiddle and vocals. He lives in the Monroe, NC area and besides playing music Josh teaches Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar and Bass. Josh has worked with James King Band, Larry Stephenson and Darin and Brooke Aldridge. Josh's first show will be at The Coot Williams Festival this Saturday in Cherryville, NC
Josh's already done more in his career than others much older than his 31 years. He has worked with A Deeper Shade of Blue, managed his own band, Ridgeside, with wife Randi Shea Greene, and many others. Josh is steeped in the traditional music of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Jimmy Martin and others famous before his time. He credits his father for “bringing him up” on the music of these Bluegrass pioneers.
Josh is now paying if forward through teaching future Bluegrass stars the music he knows and loves. He currently has 35 students enrolled in his music classes.
Fret High has a sound that is all their own, that they have worked very hard to establish and set themselves apart from other mainstream bluegrass bands. Among the four members they have over 100 combined years in the music business and have racked up SPBGMA nominations, Dove Award nominations and even a Grammy nomination while playing with other groups.
What sets this band apart is their own style of music though deeply rooted in the traditional ties of Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe. Fret High has that tight quartet harmony tied together by smooth hard driving picking.
Their shows are full of energy and you can tell from the start they have so much fun at what they do, and their respect for one another as musicians shines through.
Fret High loves their fans and always has time to talk and spend time with the folks that come out to see their shows. If you have not seen Fret High in action, check them out next time they are in your area, you will not leave disappointed.
