About The Kentucky Cowtippers

Since forming in 2008, the Kentucky Cow Tippers have deservedly earned a reputation as one of the hardest working and most exciting acts on the UK’s acoustic music scene.

Their unique approach to bluegrass draws from a deep appreciation of every aspect of the genre: they’ve absorbed everything from traditional Appalachian harmonies and fiddle tunes through to the psych/country-tinged sounds of Old & In the Way and the Seldom Scene, as well as progressive “Newgrass” by the likes of Béla Fleck and Punch Brothers.

They incorporate all of these elements, along with folk, pop/rock and jazz influences, into their original material and refreshing renditions of bluegrass classics.

With a lineup of Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin, Fiddle and Double bass, the 5-piece band contain some of the country's top bluegrass, folk and acoustic musicians and together they perform a set of high energy entertainment you will never forget!

Founding members Sam Wear (banjo), Rupert Hughes (guitar) and Evan Davies (mandolin) all hail from the North East, and are responsible, individually and collectively, for penning the group’s original material.

In 2014, this core trio was augmented by transplanted American fiddler Niles Krieger and jazz bassist Sam Quintana.

The result is a driving, energetic quintet that delivers a tight yet spontaneous stage show.

If you enjoy close vocal harmonies, wild bluegrass improvisation, witty stage banter and brown corduroy jackets, then you’ll love the Kentucky Cow Tippers – just don’t ask about the name!
