Blue Flags & Black Grass has been performing in Portland and the PNW for nearly 10 years. This past summer, BFBG had a great adventure playing around Alaska. You can typically find Blue Flags at summer festivals such as NW Folklife, Oregon Country Fair, Sh'Bang, Cascadia Rendezvous and other events. Blue Flags has been hosting jug band workshops for kids and adults alike. In February, Blue Flags released their latest album, Sweet Dee's Kitchen.
Blue Flags & Black Grass is a combination of many flavors of acoustic American Roots Music. With the instrumentation of Banjo, Res-o-phonic Guitar, Fiddle, Washboard, Kazoo and Upright Bass, Blue Flags emulates the String Bands of the 1920s and ‘30s. Their typical gig will blend Ragtime, Viper Jazz, Country Blues, Old-Time, Jug Band and Bluegrass. As well as performing classic standards and dusting off hidden gems, Blue Flags also features original songs by Flip ‘Fats’ McGuire.
