The Greg Blake Band
Wallsburg alumni Greg Blake & K.C. Groves return preforming with the Greg Blake band; a quartet that showcases his talents as a singer, guitarist and bandleader.
Greg began playing and singing at age seven. Greg was selected SPBGMA Bluegrass Guitar Performer of the Year five years in a row, and has been nominated for that honor a total of 9 times, as well as being nominated twice for Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year.
An accomplished instrumentalist (mandolin, guitar, bass), vocalist and songwriter, K.C. Groves has been at the heart of many celebrated projects. As the creative center and bandleader of Uncle Earl for over a decade, K.C. helped bring old time music to a wider audience. In addition to Uncle Earl, K.C. has released two solo albums of original material, and was a Telluride Troubadour contest finalist and a Detroit Music Award winner.

Isaac Callender, a Weiser fiddle champion, began playing violin at the age of three adds his own flare to the band’s traditional sound.
Canadian banjoist Craig Korth was the Front man for the Edmonton based bluegrass band Jerusalem Ridge for 18 years and his energetic style and lively stage presence have always been highly entertaining!
A big man with an even bigger heart, Greg Blake and his band bring an uplifting joy to the music they perform. They dig deep into the roots of bluegrass music, infusing everything they play with a powerful, and soaring spirit.
