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.

Flip McGuire - Banjo, Res-o-phonic Guitar, Kazoo

Jason Reichert - Res-o-phonic Guitar, Harps

Elwood Johncox - Upright Bass
