pedigreed six-piece powerhouse that has set the pace in Bluegrass for
over two decades, SIDELINE was founded by Steve Dilling (banjo), Skip
Cherryholmes (guitar) and Jason Moore (bass).  The three have all made
historical and significant contributions to the genre as members of
highly-awarded groups, with multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances, and
years of global touring behind them.  What started as a side project for
these seasoned players soon expanded as the core members were joined by
Bailey Coe (guitar) and Troy Boone (mandolin).  Newcomer Daniel Greeson
replaced longtime bandmember Nathan Aldridge on fiddle in 2018.  With
songs that range from pulse-pounding barn burners to those sung from the
heart, this sextet brings perfected timing and dynamic – as well as
visceral emotion – to their music.  With three previous successful album
releases, audiences have found that whether live or recorded, the group
moves easily from well-chosen, neo-traditional covers to new material
curated with a holistic sense of identity and mission.  Add their
on-stage energy and powerful harmonies to the mix, and you have the best
of the revered Carolina ‘Grass sound.
