Flats and Sharps are a high-energy contemporary Bluegrass band, from Penzance, Cornwall, in the South West of England, known for their own highly original songs as well as their blistering renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five incredible young musicians honed their skills in hundreds of live performances over the past six years, charming and wowing audiences along the way. They’ve come a long way, from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds, to performing at the Proms in Hyde Park, London, and at scores of festivals throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and Australia. On their first Australian tour in 2017, they delighted audiences at the National Folk Festival, Canberra and Fairbridge Music Festival, WA. They returned here in 2018, again playing the National Festival, plus the Blue Mountains Music Festival and an extensive NSW tour. They have since been invited to the home of Bluegrass, the USA, to represent the UK in the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass in September 2018. In 2019 they have been invited back by the Fairbridge Festival in WA, where they’ll also play the Albany Festival before heading east to Victoria and NSW.
