Although having recently celebrated 5 years as the pedigree six-piece bluegrass powerhouse they are, Sideline founders Steve Dilling (banjo), Skip Cherryholmes (guitar) and Jason Moore (bass) can all claim their own historical significance to the genre as members of highly awarded groups with multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances and decades of national and international touring experience between them – the present celebrated lineup is complemented by the gifted youthful trio of Daniel Greeson (fiddle), Troy Boone (mandolin) & Bailey Coe (guitar).
What started as a side project for seasoned players, hence the name, Sideline has since released 4 critically acclaimed albums combining a well-chosen mix of new material with hard-hitting neo-traditional covers of bluegrass classics. Recorded or live, their pulse-pounding drive, perfect timing, crisp instrumentals, powerful harmonies, and on-stage energy and finesse remind fans why they fell in love with bluegrass in the first place.
Fresh off the success of their hit ‘Thunder Dan’, number 1 on the Bluegrass Today chart of the Top 30 bluegrass songs of 2018, Sideline can’t wait to bring their show to an Irish audience and we’re proud to present them in Sligo’s Gillooly Hall on July 10th for the second gig of the 6-gig nationwide tour. This chart-toppin’ pulse-pounding pedigree bluegrass, a show you don’t want to miss.
… driving music with crisp instrumentals and tight harmonies. Whether playing bluegrass classics or contemporary tunes destined to become classics, they deliver a great show. – Bluegrass Today

The opening track & first single release from the 2018 album Front And Center, ‘Thunder Dan’ is already Sideline’s signature song. The band’s most streamed & Shazamed song by some way, it was top of the bluegrass pile in 2018 – it was the number 1 song on the Bluegrass Today chart of the Top 30 bluegrass songs of 2018.
