About The Lil' Smokies
Hailing from Missoula, MT, The Lil' Smokies exploded into the bluegrass/stringband scene back in the winter of 2009 and haven't shown any signs of fatigue since. The Lil' Smokies have shared the stage with heavyweights like, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Keller Williams, Greensky Bluegrass, The Emmit-Nershi Band and dozens of others. Winning the 2013 Northwest String Summit Band Competition has proven that The Lil' Smokies have no problem captivating large audiences. With a unique blend of traditional bluegrass, newgrass, unique original compositions, and sheer raw energy, The Lil' Smokies weave seamlessly through genres, leaving something for everyone. Their latest release, "The Lil' Smokies - Live New Year's Eve 2013", captures the raw energy of their legendary Top Hat (Missoula, MT) shows while showcasing new, original tunes, a few from the first album, and a couple boisterous covers. This six-piece ensemble features, Pete Barrett (guitar), Andy Dunnigan (dobro), Scott Parker (upright bass), Matt Cornette (banjo), Cameron Wilson (mandolin), and Jesse Brown (fiddle).
