Bourbon Barrel Congress was born out of a decades old bluegrass jam at a burger and beer joint in a small Virginia town where the quartet met. Chris Davis (Bass/Vocals), Rene Devito (fiddle/mandolin), Ethan Hawkins (Guitar/Vocals), and John Spangler (Banjo/Vocals) conjure a sound that blurs the lines between bluegrass, old-time, folk and country music, that is familiar and fresh, old and at the same time new.
