About

The Matchsellers is the unlikely result of a classically trained violinist from Kansas City and a blues guitarist from Indiana meeting in Europe and forming a bluegrass duo. During their year of working as ex-pats in Leipzig, Germany, the pair began reanalyzing the songs of their homeland, and developed a tight yet gritty bluegrass style. In the summer of 2013 they left their jobs to hit the road and haven’t looked back.

Since then they have toured Germany, the UK, the Czech Republic, and 25 US states, averaging 170 shows a year. Some highlights include the 2014 Dawg Daze of Summer Festival with Ricky Skaggs, 2014 Kansas State Picking & Fiddling Championships and the WDVX Blue Plate Special. The Matchsellers have become known for their excellent musicianship, tight vocal harmonies and an entertaining, high-energy stage show best experienced live. Faithful bluegrass traditionals and blues-infused originals are peppered with German songs and various folk covers for a diverse set list. They are currently touring on their album Kosciusko County, released on Dec 27th, 2014. For booking and/or general information contact them: thematchsellers [at] gmail.com
