Old Louisville Express
Focusing on traditional forms and progressive innovation, Old Louisville Express delivers an exciting blend of new bluegrass music. From energetic picking runs to high and lonesome ballads, the group of friends share a passion and enjoyment found in the classic elements of the form, while also striving for an original and engaging sound.
Featuring Tony Myers on mandolin and lead vocals, Bobby Wilson on fiddle, Joe Kelmel on bass, Josh Richardson on guitar, and Bobby Austin on banjo, the band's major influences include the traditional music of Bill Monroe and the contemporary bluegrass of Bowling Green native Sam Bush. With an appreciation of bluegrass that spans from its earliest roots to its freshest fruits, Old Louisville Express consistently appeals to audiences young and old with a truly unique style.
