Ruben & Matt & The Truffle Valley Boys (SWE ITA CH)

Ruben and Matt are two seasoned musicians on the Blue Grass and Country music scene that have teamed up with a crew of the finest old-school musicians in Italy to bring back the raw, powerful and genuine sound of the very early years of Blue Grass music. The band draws its repertoire from some of the more obscure Blue Grass artists from the early-to-mid 1950s that sprung as a branch of Country music, were strongly influenced by Western Swing and Blues, and played a very important role in the birth of Rockabilly. Characterised by their vocal harmonies and use of acoustic instruments like banjo, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar and double bass, the band “dances” around a single microphone, in an intricate dynamic choreography, to fully reproduce the visual and musical experience of a mid-century Blue Grass band – a historical, aesthetic and musical feast for your eyes, ears and soul.
