Sudbury's Murder Murder play the genre of music they invented: bloodgrass. They meld bluegrass, murder ballads and the ferocity of punk and rockabilly into a frothy, stunning tornado of genre mix-ups that has to be heard - and seen - to be believed.
Benjamin William Pike, Blues & Roots Radio:
“Grim yet never dour, fierce yet passionate and recklessly wild executed with extreme precision. Throughout the set, the bloodgrass stringboard performed with confidence, virtuoso playing and a fiery stage presence. The ferocious energy of punk, the virtuosic execution of jazz."
American Roots UK:
"Awash with originality, often frenetic but always virtuosic playing, evocative vocals and a dramatic intensity that few if any can match. They attack every song as if it is the last they will ever play; even the slow mournful ballads are full of passion, incredible playing and evocative vocals.”
