The Bluegrass Cartel is a "local all-star" traditional bluegrass band, originally put together by Birmingham mandolinist-about-town Jason Bailey.  We can't even count how many years of bluegrass and how many millions of notes have been played by these musicians:

  • Jason Bailey, mandolin
  • Herb Trotman, banjo
  • Sam Pointer, guitar and lead vocals
  • Gathel Runnels, fiddle and tenor vocals
  • Selwyn Spaulding, bass and baritone vocals

Expect lots of high-powered, barn-burning bluegrass from sources like Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, and the Stanley Brothers, and everything from lightning-fast banjo instrumentals to smooth vocal trios to an occasional gospel number or ballad. Hold onto your hat!
