Sideline Announces Spring Tour Dates
Six-piece pedigreed powerhouse Bluegrass band SIDELINE sets a furious pace for spring with a slew of dates in support of their new release, BREAKS TO THE EDGE. The reigning IBMA Song of the Year (for "Thunder Dan") award-winning group will headline shows across the U.S. bringing their boundless high-energy style and remarkable skill set to new audiences.
Revered for their intense stage performances, Sideline features strong rhythms, intricate instrumentals, and a range of rich vocal stylings. At every show the band's tight mix of dynamics is driven by the pocket and pulse of original member Steve Dilling's award winning banjo and co-founder Jason Moore's rock steady bass. The third partner at the group's heart, Skip Cherryholmes, dishes up impressive flatpicking from start to finish. The talents of new members Zack Arnold (mandolin), Jacob Greer (guitar) and Jamie Harper (fiddle) complete the sextet.

In 2019 Sideline performed at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, The Red Hat Amphitheater, as well as more intimate stages. The band shared the spotlight with luminaries Ricky Skaggs, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John Paul White, Dan Tyminski and others.
Reflecting the North Carolina group's roots and experiences, BREAKS TO THE EDGE, the group's fifth studio album, includes stories of traveling troubadours as told in their #1 Bluegrass Today release, "Return To Windy Mountain." Traditional tunes are interspersed with the more progressive #1 Bluegrass Today re-make of Steve Wariner's "Crash Course In The Blues," and classic Southern Gospel is celebrated with "I'll Live Again" and Sideline's sublime four-part harmony. Barnburners, mournful love songs, Blues-flavored odes and more can be found on the new project.
