The Ackermans

The World's Smallest Quartet

 

1946 saw the birth of bluegrass, a new musical genre that generated as much excitement as the creation of rock'n roll would just a few years later. Today, led by Aaron Ackerman, The Ackermans carry that same musical thrill forward into a new century. At a time when most top bluegrass bands are smooth, tight and virtuosic, The Ackermans retain some of the rugged, roughhewn dynamism, and emotional impact of traditional bluegrass to new audiences. “We don't look like anything that most audiences have seen before,” Jeremy Ackerman says. “We wear three-of-a-kind custom designed ‘redneck tuxedos' and perform around a single microphone so there is a lot of movement between us on stage. Every instrument will be featured, and we'll do everything from foot stomping fiddle tunes to waltzes to old time music.”

“By milking the ‘hayseed' image of back wood folks surrounding the idiom of Bluegrass music,” says Randy Ackerman, “we have collected a slurry of accomplishments.” The Ackermans have had the opportunity to play many festivals in the Colorado, Nebraska, Utah region, including Pueblo Bluegrass on the River, Mid-Winter Bluegrass festival in Denver and High Mountain Hay Fever in Westcliffe, Colorado. The Ackermans have also had the honor of being selecting as one of 12 bands to compete in the national Youth in Bluegrass competition taking place at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. From the moment they hit the stage until the moment they leave, the audience is going to be entertained!"

What an experience in Aspen, Colorado. The view was spectacular but the air was sparse, probably due to the fact that we played at almost 12,000 feet above sea level. Look at more photos, just click on the pictrue!
