Grandpa’s Cough Medicine LIVE @ Pisgah Brewing Co. 1-2-2018
Grandpa’s Cough Medicine is the brainchild of guitarist, singer and songwriter Brett Bass. The 2015 Rockygrass flat picking champion, Brett has shared the stage with Grammy winning artists such as The Del McCoury Band, Steep Canyon Rangers, Jim Lauderdale and Jamgrass pioneers Larry Keel, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon and Billy Strings. Brett’s powerful guitar playing and baritone vocals are flanked by virtuosic banjo and thumping upright bass. His songwriting is filled to the brim with stories of murder, over indulgence, cutting social commentary and a healthy dose of dark humor. The combination is an outlaw bluegrass freight train, barreling down the tracks at blazing speeds and letting sparks fly everywhere they go. The Florida Times-Union included the band’s CD “Jailbird Blues” among the top ten local albums of 2011.
