Never miss a Sunday show! Come joint TPG Trio and Flatland Harmony Experiment at the Trap!
Tuttle, Pool and Greuel Trio
Join the Tuttle, Pool and Greuel Trio for a trio known to bend the rules of bluegrass. Born out of festival malarky and late night hotel jams, this trio comes along as a sort of ‘Three Musketeers’ of the grass universe. Focusing on the parts of the music that spark joy and grow our community, these three writers and pickers will showcase some of their favorite material in a new and exciting way. Kyle Tuttle, Jared Pool, and Adam Greuel conjure a show that’s simply too cool for school, bringing a good time get down to roadhouses, theaters, and friendly homes there, there, and everywhere.
Flatland Harmony Experiment
Flatland Harmony Experiment is a high octane three piece vocally driven string band from Indianapolis Indiana. Flatland Harmony Experiment dances with a single large diaphragm condenser microphone to share their music with audiences. FHE’s music and stage show drips with intensity and passion and it is easy to tell they love what they do. The trio trades lead vocal and lead instrumental responsibilities through a large and diverse original musical palette. The instrumental mix of mandolin, banjo and upright bass allows ample space for musical experimentation and expression.
Kyle Tuttle Banjo
International Banjo Champion Kyle Tuttle is shredding his way through the jamgrass scene. Since moving to Nashville in 2012 Kyle has shared the stage with many epic performers, most notably as a member of the Jeff Austin Band for 3 years. Kyle has also worked closely with Jamgrass legends Lrarry Keel, Travelin’ McCourys, Leftover Salmon, Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings, and Railroad Earth. In addition to being seen around the jamgrass circuit, Kyle is a studio musician in Nashville, and recently produced the Chain Station album ‘Backroads’.
A few words from Jeff Austin about Kyle, “He’s one of a kind, I’m telling you. If there’s a better banjo player then show them to me. It’s a rare gift when somebody can connect theoretical musical depth, like knowing what phrasing you’re using, or what key you’re in, or what variation on the chord you’re using with, fucking balls of fucking steel. To just be able to dig in like he does and play his ass off, it’s amazing.”
Kyle’s debut album ‘Bobcat’ was released in 2016. Pete Wernick of Hot Rize says about the record, “Precious few banjo players have both solid mastery of traditional Scruggs style and also the impulse and ability to make eclectic excursions using high-challenge techniques. On Bobcat, that combination creates a likeable “anything might happen” feeling that pulls the listener in. Kyle’s tone and execution are clean and attractive, and help sell his musical choices to the listener. In all, Bobcat is a welcome debut, introducing us to a banjo player who deserves our attention.”

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.
