Grand Ole' Ditch
Grand Ole' Ditch
Grand Ole’ Ditch

...is a contemporary bluegrass band born in the mountains of Western Maryland. With a style steeped in Appalachian musical tradition, the band aims to reimagine contemporary music with bluegrass stylizations. The band derived its name from an important piece of Western Maryland history: the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The Canal, nicknamed the Grand Old Ditch, carried coal from the Allegheny Mountains to the East Coast during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bluegrass told the story of the people of this era, and was an essential part of their culture. Grand Ole’ Ditch is continuing the bluegrass narrative using today’s culture as its backdrop and each band member’s unique musical expressions as its language.

Dead Men’s Hollow began as an impromptu backyard pick n’ sing in the summer of 2001. Today the group is a well-established regional band. Dead Men’s Hollow performs at a wide range of venues, from churches, bars, and festivals to fine arts halls such as Strathmore and the Kennedy Center.

Dead Men’s Hollow draws its influences from bluegrass, country, blues, and gospel. The result is a unique sound of tight harmony vocals backed by traditional bluegrass instrumentation: fiddle, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and guitar. The group’s repertoire comprises a vast array of original and traditional music, encompassing the early centuries of America’s musical history as well as modern tales of love and loss.

The group has recorded four commercially released CDs and has tracks on numerous compilation CDs, appeared on national television, received 18 Washington Area Music Association “Wammie” Award nominations, won six Wammie Awards—including Best Bluegrass Group and Bluegrass Album of the Year—and continues to be played on radio programs around the world.
