FEATURED ARTIST
Casey Driessen


Driessen is an amazing young fiddler, who uses traditional bluegrass stylings as a launch pad to mesmerizing improvisational roots music.  He’s grounded in tradition, like Michael Doucet of Beausoleil, but has a broad imagination and ends up concocting a bluegrass/jazz hybrid that recalls some of the best work of Vassar Clements.  This 27-year-old, Berklee College of Music educated musician has already worked with many of the leading lights in bluegrass and country, including Steve Earle, Tim O’Brien, Lee Ann Womack, Béla Fleck, and Jim Lauderdale among many others.  3D is his much anticipated debut on Sugar Hill Records out on May 9 in the US(Sarah Zupko)
