Flats and Sharps (UK)
Flats and Sharps are a five-piece high-energy contemporary Bluegrass band, from Penzance, Cornwall, in the South West of England, known for their own highly original songs as well as their blistering renditions of Bluegrass classics.
These five incredible young musicians, Kirk Bowman (banjo), Mikey Ponsford (mandolin), Josh Warner (guitar), Danny Hart (fiddle) and Liam Fitzharris (double bass), honed their skills in hundreds of live performances over the past six years, charming and wowing audiences along the way. They've come a long way, from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds, to performing at the Proms in Hyde Park, London, and at scores of festivals throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.
"...effortlessly entertaining ...sublime five-part harmonies ...the pace of their performance is breathtaking - I recommend seeing Flats and Sharps at the earliest opportunity. If you can prove your disappointment, I'll personally send you a cash refund." – Mark Ellen (R2 Magazine)
