About The Mountain Grass Unit
Website | Facebook | Instagram | YouTube | Spotify
The Mountain Grass Unit consists of three Birmingham teenage pickers, Drury Anderson (mandolin and vocals), Luke Black (acoustic guitar and banjo), and Sam Wilson (upright bass). The Mountain Grass Unit has played music festivals, private functions and multiple music venues, playing bluegrass tunes and adding a bluegrass touch to country, jazz, funk, rock, and even metal. They have opened for bands such as The Sam Bush Band and Kingfish. The fast pace picking and acoustic touch makes MGU unique. With the addition of Luke Black and Sam Wilson on harmonies, The Mountain Grass Unit has established the firm foundation to take on not only the vocal harmonies of traditional bluegrass tunes, but also the freedom to adapt songs from various genres to an all-acoustic format. Aside from their original songs, all three are equally comfortable restyling a Tony Rice number, a classic Grateful Dead tune or covering contemporary acoustic masters like Billy Strings. The youthful exuberance and energy they bring to the stage is always remarkable. Their competency at what they do was best described by Birmingham music promoter Steve Masterson when the boys performed at his Acoustic Café festival: “They don’t just play good for their age, they play good. Period.” Sam, Luke and Drury are excited to share with their audiences this new and exciting musical chapter.

Hailing from Omaha, NE, and with the sole purpose of reintroducing people to the truly American genre of bluegrass/Americana music.
To accomplish this goal we do it the only way we know how: by playing absolutely no real bluegrass whatsoever.
Instead, we pay homage to the artists of the last 30 years give or take by bluegrassin’ up tunes from Elton John to Cyndi Lauper (which is the way I am sure they meant for the songs to sound, had they the tools to do so). Check us out!
