Dunderhead at the Purple Fiddle

June 21, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

$10

Dunderhead joined as a group in January 2013. It started out as a collaboration for the recording project “Sounds like a good story” and they found each other immediately in the music. During their first year together they were known as Angelina Darland and The Moonshine Brothers.

They have been doing a lot of concerts during this first year together and have even won first prize at European World of Bluegrass i Voorthuizen, The Netherlands.

 

The group is active in Gothenburg, but consists of great musicians from different parts of Sweden. Angelina, with a reputation as Sweden’s upcoming country artist, was born and raised in Lund, where she started out playing the classical piano. Anders Ternesten who brought together The Moonshine Brothers in 2011 has a long record as band leader and solid banjo player from Gothenburg. Mikael Grund is well reputed as one of Europes greatest leadsingers in bluegrass music and he moved with his mandolin from Stöllet in Värmland down to Gothenburg. In the beginning of December 2013 the band got a new bass player as the wonderful Carl Karlsson from Småland came to join in. Finally, the young and talented guitarist Jimmy Hermansson from Trollhättan, adds the extra spice to push this band up the top ladder of what Europe has to offer in this genre.

On March 4 2015 Dunderhead released their first album together on Rootsy Records, containing their own material written by Angelina Lundh and Mikael Grund.
