David Grisman Quintet

25 years ago the David Grisman Quintet's first album revolutionized the world of acoustic string music and inspired a new generation of musicians. Now the David Grisman Quintet brings their imaginative blend of acoustic "dawg music" into the 21st Century with the genre-bending brilliance of Dawgnation. Opening with the powerful show-stopper "Slade" (dedicated to the late Charles Sawtelle), the DGQ is a lean and mean greyhound machine, putting all their musical expertise, passion and road-tested diligence into extreme focus.

From there the pace elegantly weaves a groove into the upbeat rock-samba "Mellow Mang," the Latin-laced "Cha Cha Chihuahua," the bluegrass-tinged "Twin Town," the dawg anthem title track from the Garcia-Grisman repertoire,the sly swing of the "Dawg After Dark," and seven other new Grisman originals.

Dawgnation celebrates the enduring quality of this longstanding Quintet. Bassist Jim Kerwin, multi-instrumentalist Joe Craven, flutist Matt Eakle and guitarist Enrique Coria each pair up with mandolin maestro Dawg in a series of duets showcasing their individual styles.
