Man About a Horse performs in Milford, PA’s Ann Street Park on Sunday June 23rd from 1-4 PM

Man About a Horse blends traditional bluegrass, rock, pop, and country-folk to create an infectious, foot-stompin’, harmony & chops-driven sound. They won the 2018 FreshGrass Band award and recently signed with Nashville-based Dark Shadow Recording label. The band embarks on a UK tour a few days after their Ann Street Park performance.

Man About a Horse has performed all through the US and shared bills with Old Crow Medicine Show, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, The Travelin’ McCourys and many others. The band’s self-titled 2017 release “Man About a Horse” debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts and garnered much critical acclaim.

Local singer-songwriter Maribyrd opens the show for Man About a Horse. Maribyrd’s vocal prowess is well known through the tri-state region and beyond. Her 2015 studio release “Cabin Sessions” showcases her rootsy, country-folk sensibilities. She performs with many of Northern NJ’s best folk and bluegrass musicians and maintains a busy schedule of performances all year long.
