When it comes to movers and shakers in the bluegrass world, Full Cord is a super group on the rise. After winning the prestigious 2022 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition in Colorado, the Michigan based group followed that with another much coveted honor when the International Bluegrass Music Association named Full Cord its “Momentum Award Band of the Year.” While mandolinist Brian Oberlin notes the band’s music “is new and fresh to the ears of seasoned bluegrass fans,” the bluegrass traditions in Full Cord have deep roots. The group’s members – Oberlin, guitarist Eric Langejans, bassist Todd Kirchner and fiddler Grant Flick – boast decades of musical artistry, with experience in  popular performing bands from Michigan to Oregon. With the recent addition of award-winning,  Colorado banjoist Ricky Mier, Full Cord is poised to take the next step in its journey as a blue grass powerhouse.
