About the Band
The DePue Brothers are made up of four violinist brothers from Bowling Green, Ohio, and encompassing a vivid blend of bluegrass, classical, and rock styles. Each brother is a classical virtuoso in his own right, and brings rich and diverse talents to their sound. As a family they have been making music together for over 25 years. They were named "Musical Family of America" in 1989 by presidential decree, were the subject of a nationally televised PBS documentary in 1993, and two brothers (Jason and Zach) were featured in the film documentary Music From the Inside Out in 2005. Their first album as brothers, "Classical Grass," sold out of its first printing.
Coming together with Tony Trischka, Mark Cosgrove, Don Liuzzi and a variety of bass players, the band began performing and recording in 2004. Their most recent album, "Weapons of Grass Construction," features a progressive mix of genres, giving direct nods to their bluegrass tradition and their classical training, while adding a deeper infusion of rock and blues.
