Sideline is a pedigreed 6-pc powerhouse whose style has set the pace in bluegrass for 2+ decades. Founders Steve Dilling (banjo), guitarist Skip Cherryholmes & Jason Moore (bass) can all claim their own historical significance to the genre as members of highly awarded groups, multiple Opry appearances & years of national/int'l touring. What started as a side project for the seasoned players soon moved to front-&-center &

began to record & release albums in earnest. In '19, Sideline won the IBMA Song of the Year Award for hit single, "Thunder Dan." To listen to Sideline reminds the fan of why so many people fall in love w/bluegrass—pulse-pounding drive, songs sung from the heart, perfected timing & dynamics as well as a visceral emotion in the rendering. A band that was started as an off-season fun experiment has become a full-time dream team of players & singers, including its latest additions, Zack Arnold (mandolin), Jamie Harper (fiddle) & guitarist Jacob Greer. Whether live or in the studio, the sextet moves dynamically from hard-hitting, neo-traditional covers of classic songs to new material, all curated by a band w/a perfect sense of who they are & what they have to say. Combine all this w/their on-stage energy & finesse as well as their powerful & affecting harmonies & you have the embodiment of the North Carolina Bluegrass sound. Sideline has released 5 national projects & records for the highly awarded Mountain Home Music Company based near Asheville, NC.
