================ About The Greencards ============

North VernonThis critically acclaimed Austin-formed / Nashville-based band’s love and respect for Americana, folk and bluegrass brought them together in 2003. The Greencards have:
  • Toured multiple dates with Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Kasey Chambers, Shawn Colvin and Tim O'Brien just to name a few;
  • Landed Grammy nominations for "Best Country Instrumental" in 2008 and 2010; and
  • Earned the Americana Music Association Award in 2006 for “Emerging Artist of the Year”
The Greencards appeared at several festivals in past years such as Austin City Limits, Telluride, Walnut Valley (Winfield), MerleFest, Newgrass, Grey Fox, Lollapalooza and the Cayamo Cruise.

Originally from Australia, an urge to challenge themselves and test the limits of any established genre has guided singer / bassist Carol Young, and mandolin master Kym Warner (accompanied by fiddle and guitar) on their first three albums.

The Greencards released their fourth album in April 2009. Fascination is the band’s most daring project to date. Meticulously crafted arrangements serve as springboards for exhilarating improvisations. While technically breathtaking and acoustically driven, The Greencards have consistently moved towards a sound of their own. A new record will be released in May 2011.
