We are thrilled to announce the winners of the FreshGrass Band Award. There were countless wonderful submissions from all over the country, and the FreshGrass Award jury found these five to be especially thoughtful and original. On Sunday morning during the festival they each performed a short set in front of the jury (and the public!), vying for a $5,000 cash first prize, a $1,000 recording session at Compass Records’ studio in Nashville, and a spot onstage at FreshGrass 2015.
Band Grand Prize: Twisted Pine
