MerleFest – Sunday (Blog Post)

The presser on Sunday was crowded and a little hectic so it didn’t naturally lend itself to too much of a theme so to speak.

I did have the opportunity to ask all of the artists at the press conference about their passions outside of music.

Here’s what I found out…

The passions of various members of The Steep Canyon Rangers was wide ranging. 

The responses were…

  • Family
  • Food
  • Festivals
  • Being Outdoors
  • Travel
  • Music Education
  • Fly Fishing
  • Fiddle
  • Trees

And Graham’s passion was his hot tub.

Alison Brown’s passions are the banjo and the roots music community.

Sam Bush’s passion is baseball (Go Cards). 


Steve Martin’s passion is the banjo.

It was really interesting for me to see what musicians are passionate and I was glad that I Had to Ask about musician’s passions.
