    ShoreGrass is a bluegrass band from the Connecticut shoreline comprised of Frank and Barbara Shaw (banjo and guitar), Paul Pozzi (mandolin), Scott Freemantle (bass) and Stacy Phillips (fiddle and Dobro).  Performing locally as well as around the Northeast since 1996, their music is a lively mix of traditional bluegrass, old-time, early country, gospel and folk songs as well as original pieces reflecting their roots in contemporary music with a local flavor.  The group has several singers who alternate leads on 3-part vocal harmonies, all delivered with the special sense of humor that marks all ShoreGrass performances.  The band has released four albums, including "In Connecticut" (2001), "Songs of the Civil War Era" (2005), "Going Home" (2007) and "Hummingbird" (2014).  Bluegrass Unlimited magazine called their music "a pleasant collection of down-home music that should attract considerable attention for the band,"  More information is available at www.shoregrass.com or www.facebook.com/shoregrassbluegrass.
