Introducing

Sicard Hollow

Sicard Hollow is a four-piece progressive bluegrass band who formed with a mutual passion for pushing the boundaries of genre. Heavily influenced by the Grateful Dead and New Grass Revival, these young pickers bring new energy to a timeless style with a combination of fearless improvisation and instrumental prowess.

Formation

Nashville’s psychedelic punk-grass rockers, Sicard Hollow, grew up sick of any existing institution telling them who and what to be. Now, as they navigate adulthood, they’re equally tired of the music institutions telling them what their music should sound like—so they dunked it in patchouli and a skate-and-destroy ethos that brings an enduring sound into the modern age.

Before the band met in 2018, none of the members ever considered playing bluegrass. Matt Rennick (violin) was working on electronic music, Will Herrin (mandolin/vocals) was playing guitar in rock bands, and Alex King (guitar/vocals) was barely playing music at all. After a few jam sessions, the bluegrass just kind of happened. Since adding Parrish Gabriel (bass) in the Fall of 2019, the band has been on a journey of self discovery within the genre while challenging themselves to make it their own.

Past Performances

Sicard Hollow has played festivals like Summer Camp Music Festival, The Peach Music Festival, Back Home Festival, Cave Fest, Lightning Bug Festival, Bluegrass in the Bottoms, Resonance Music & Arts Festival, Birds of a Feather, and Resonate where they’ve shared billing with acts like Oysterhead, Umphrey’s McGee, The String Cheese Incident, Moe., Railroad Earth, Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Sierra Hull, Kitchen Dwellers, Lindsay Lou, Mimi Naja, Devil Makes Three, Keller Williams, Leftover Salmon, Mandolin Orange, Horseshoes & Handgrenades, and many more.

Additionally, the band has directly supported Sam Bush, the Infamous Stringdusters, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Billy Failing Band, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Wilder Blue, CBDB, Spafford, Kyle Tuttle, Dogs In A Pile, and Eggy.
