The Marshgrass Mamas are a bevy of Johns Island musical gals. The roots of their music stem from traditional bluegrass and Appalachian old-time, but over the decades the sound has morphed into a unique sound of their own. Band members consist of Cary Ann Hearst & Hazel Ketchum pickin’ the guitar, Kristen Meierer thumping the doghouse bass, Dee Payne wailing on the banjo, Gina Perez & Chandler Marburg sawing on the fiddles, Lauren Bevins Cahill putting the chop on the mandolin, and Caitlin Cahill Pape banging the banjolele.
Beautiful harmonies mixed with ridiculousness are sure to melt your heart and keep you around for more. The Marshgrass Mamas are known for being entertaining on stage while stomping out their own signature sound.
