A trio of longtime friends and musical collaborators. Kansas City’s Old Sound crafts traditional and original folk music. Led by Grady Keller’s imaginative storytelling, Old Sound travels through song with solid three-part harmonies and evocative acoustic compositions. The trio is strengthened by the exploratory bluegrass flatpicking style of Chad Brothers and the playful doghouse groove of Greg Herrenbruck on upright bass. With musical roots in their hometown of Winfield, Kansas, Brothers and Herrenbruck cut their teeth in the picking circles and campground stages of the Walnut Valley Festival. Paired with Keller’s colorful melodies and lyricism, Old Sound’s approach makes for easy front porch listening.

Four Roses – “It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.”
