Low Ground is a musical experience curated in the state of Florida. They specialize in acoustic jams, continuously mixing the old with the new and adding twists of their own along the way. They are described as being a fresh sound that keeps the traditionalists happy, while also catering to those whose seek to push past the boundaries of the norm. Low Ground is heavily influenced by Americana, Bluegrass, Folk, Rock, Blues,Jazz, and Jam styles of music. As a band they strive to honor the history and traditions set forth by these styles of music; even while adding in their own artistic expression.
The band consists of guitarist Nico Kiriazis; Life-long musician and multi-instrumentalist whose repertoire spans genres. On Fiddle we have Paddy King, multi-instrumentalist whose roots are in bluegrass having learned the genre from his father! He is also classically trained and steeped in many genres from polka to rock and roll! On the upright bass you will find Amanda Accardi; naturally inclined vocalist and musician with a keen ear for music. On the 5-string we have Isaac Taylor. His elite banjo skills combined with his powerhouse vocals make him a true force to be reckoned with. Holding down the mandolin is Trevor Klutz, multi-instrumentalist and bluegrass aficionado. His mandolin playing spans the repertoire from Monroe to Grisman and everything in between. Together they form a unique group whose love for music is apparent whenever they pick up their instruments!
Since their formation in June of 2020 Low Ground has already made leeway within the Florida music scene. They have been featured on various festival lineups including Orange Blossom Jamboree, the EMS Spring Fest, Farm 2 Grass Music Festival, Riverhawk, and The Everglades Bluegrass Festival. They are actively involved with reputable bluegrass music associations such as the Florida Bluegrass Network, Heartland Bluegrass and South Florida Bluegrass. They have shared the stage with nationally touring bands and artists such as Del McCoury, The Steeldrivers, Jim Lauderdale, Songs From the Road Band, Nothin’ Fancy, The Grass is Dead, and Uproot Hootenanny.
