European World of Bluegrass!

We’re heading down to the Netherlands for the EWOB festival! It’s gonna be three days of playing, listening to and talking about bluegrass music. And of course getting to meet all the great people in European bluegrass. Hope to see you there!

World of Bluegrass

We’re in Raleigh for a busy week of showcases and meetings! We’re gonna play a lot and also listen to tons of great bluegrass. We hope to see you at one of our gigs!

The album is here!

Across the Deep Blue Sea

The wait is over! Almost. On april 15 we will release our new album, Across the Deep Blue Sea, on Rootsy records. It will contain twelve of our own songs and two carefully selected covers. There will be banjos, fiddles, mandolins and dobros. There will be no drums. We hope you’ll like it!

2015 here we come!

2015 looks to be an exciting year for The Original Five. Our new album will be released in april. But we have a couple of fun gigs in the near future. On January 22 we will play at Grand Öl & Mat in Malmö with the amazing G2 Bluegrass Band, then on February 7 we will play at folk festival Midvinterton in Olofström. See you out there!

Summertime is past and gone

We’ve had a fantastic summer with great gigs at Korrö folkmusikfestival, Sjönevadsfesten, Grenna bluegrassfestival and Malmöfestivalen among others. Next up is Söderslätts countryfestival on september 6th, then we will participate in celebrating Rootsy’s 10th anniversary on september 10-11. We will also start working on our next album. See ya!

Thanks Martin!

We would like to thank Martin Landhammar for four years of excellent banjo playing. He will now move on to new challenges. We will miss you! Good luck with the skateboarding!
