Uncle Earl

Initially the brainchild of Michigan folksingers K.C. Groves (now based in Lyons, CO) and Jo Serrapere, Uncle Earl were founded in 2000 after each artist had established herself as a solo artist. Work on their debut, She Went Upstairs, began shortly thereafter and little time passed before the duo added vocalist Tahmineh Gueramy to the mix, sealing the group's membership. When Sally Van Meter signed on to the project as producer and side musician, she was able to procure the talents of fiddler Laurie Lewis and mandolinist Pooh Stevenson to guest on the album, which, along with the hearty verbal support of Mollie O'Brien, gave She Went Upstairs more weight in the contemporary bluegrass community. The band self-released the album to favorable reviews in 2002.

Between finishing the recording of She Went Upstairs and its release, Groves made the move to Colorado, and Uncle Earl rarely found the chance to support their new record. Eventually the band dissolved and Groves released another solo album, Something Familiar, before she pieced together a new lineup under the Uncle Earl heading. Looking to expand the project into a more fleshed-out ensemble, Groves invited Rayna Gellert (fiddle, vocals), Abby Washburn (banjo, vocals), Kristin Andreassen (guitar, clogging, vocals), and Sharon Gilchrist (bass, mandolin, vocals) into the fold and the quintet recorded She Waits for Night. This time Uncle Earl found the production talents of Dirk Powell, and the results were favorable enough for Rounder to pick up and release the album in July 2005. Waterloo, Tennessee followed in 2007. Although each member lives in a different state, the quintet seems to suffer less the problems of proximity than the original Uncle Earl lineup. ~ Gregory McIntosh, Rovi

Great old timey music.
Not bluegrass This is oldtime.
These are some talented ladies. KC used to play at Oskar Blues jam nights if I remember correctly. Also met Sally VM there on evening, she told me about playing w/ Garcia before his death. As I said, very talented group!
Love,Abigail Washburn.
What amazing voice and she has a great story!
THE VARIOUS LINE UPS THAT HAVE COME AND GONE WITH THIS WONDERFUL GROUP HAS BEEN THE STRONG POINT FOR ME.ABIGAIL WASHBURN,CAS E Y GROVE etc MAKE FOR CONSTANTLY & CONSISTANTLY GORGEOUS OLD TIMEE MUSIC. MY FAVOURITE TRAD BLUEGRASS GROUP.
This bio is a bit inaccurate.
I have never seen them play in person,but have been a fan of Sharon Gilchrist, since I first heard her play with Mary and Mars at High Sierra a few years back!
Dang, I thought I was the only one who knew about Lyons, Colorado (and Lyons, Kansas for that matter). Good music. Keep it up to artists and Pandora (like She Waits For The Night). How about Limon? Silvercliffe ? ? Crestone??? (Colorado). Anyway, music worthy of continuance. (not in the legal sense of the word!)
