Flatland Harmony Experiment
Flatland Harmony Experiment is an exciting new band that plays a mixture of Bluegrass, Blues, Americana, Roots, Reggae, Folk, Rock and Jazz in an all acoustic format that we like to call “nügrass”. Drawing influences from a number of diverse styles, Flatland Harmony Experiment performs from a large library of original and eclectic cover material. Flatland Harmony Experiment is Scott Nelson on upright bass, Kris Potts on Mandolin, Johnny Plott on Banjo, Harvey Mosteller on Guitar and Craig Stinson on Fiddle. Hailing from different backgrounds in the music industry, they are rock-solid players and vocalists who bring their experience and maturity together to create a uniquely organic musical landscape. Playing with the subtleties of acoustic string instruments and human voice, Flatland Harmony Experiment delivers a dynamic performance that will take the audience from sweet harmony to spaces of driving rhythm within each performance. Playing each show like their last, this is a project that must be experienced.
The Midwest Rhythm Exchange
The band is currently composed of Kevin Lee Guthridge (Blue Hound Underground) on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Matt Koher (Blueprint Music, Maple Trio) on violin, Doug Sauter (Blueprint Music, Maple Trio) on mandolin, and Aaron Ransdell (Tonos Triad) on the upright bass.
The band was founded in an attempt to bring traditional gypsy swing and other acoustic styles to a modern audience. Through a combination of progressive arrangements, experienced musicianship, and inspired compositions they deliver a high-energy show that finds a way to connect traditional music to a modern ‘jukebox audience’.
