Fireside Collective

Bluegrass Band
Bluegrass Band


Fireside Collective is a heavily instrumental progressive bluegrass band that intertwines traditional bluegrass with progressive folk. The band is based out of Asheville, NC and draws heavy influence from historic Appalachian music. Fireside Collective was the winner of the 2016 MerleFest band competition, and was selected as one of 30 bands chosen from more than 160 submissions to perform at the 2017 International Bluegrass Music Association Bluegrass Ramble. While approaching traditional bluegrass with respect and affection, Fireside Collective has shown that it is not afraid to innovate and progress the genre forward.
