"'High energy' is an understatement." -- Michael K. Brantley, Bluegrass Unlimited

"I do not make predictions, but you will totally dig Man About a Horse." -- Steve Martin, Unreal Bluegrass

Man About a Horse combines strong ties to the bluegrass tradition with a progressive streak that informs their original songwriting and unorthodox song selections. Their music reflects the wide range of influences on this Philadelphia-based band, from blues and rock to classical and pop, all blended together by a traditional bluegrass lineup.

Man About a Horse’s first full-length album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart in 2017, earning praise from Bluegrass Unlimited, British Bluegrass News, and others. The band notched its first position on the Bluegrass Today radio chart in 2018. They’ve performed at festivals and in venues around the U.S., sharing the stage with Cabinet, Danny Barnes, Walsh and Woodsmith, Jeff Austin Band, Jenni Lyn, and many more.
