Emmy-Nominated Gangstagrass to Hit Harvester Stage in August

ROCKY MOUNT — Harvester Performance Center will welcome bluegrass/hip-hop ensemble Gangstagrass to Rocky Mount on Saturday, Aug. 20 at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. 

Known most widely for the opening theme for the FX crime series “Justified,” the group’s distinctive sound has found fans all over the world. 

Gangstagrass combines great American traditions of bluegrass, hip-hop, and beyond to create a whole new musical genre that is more than the sum of its parts. 

As latest album “No Time For Enemies” climbed to #1 on the Billboard bluegrass chart, Americana Highways magazine proclaimed Emmy-nominated Gangstagrass “America’s Band” because they take so much of what’s amazing about this country — ingenuity, creativity, freedom, unity across differences, people’s individual strength and struggles — and distill it into a message of common ground in the form of original songs that have everyone up and dancing. 

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
