"...effortlessly entertaining ...sublime five part harmonies ...the pace of their performance is breathtaking - I recommend seeing Flats and Sharps at the earliest opportunity. If you can prove your disappointment, I'll personally send you a cash refund." - Mark Ellen - R2 Magazine

Flats and Sharps are a high-energy contemporary Bluegrass band, from Penzance, Cornwall, in the South West of England, known for their own highly original songs as well as their blistering renditions of Bluegrass classics.
These five incredible young musicians, Kirk Bowman (banjo), Mikey Ponsford (mandolin), Josh Warner (guitar), Danny Hart (fiddle) and Liam Fitzharris (double bass), honed their skills in hundreds of live performances over the past six years, charming and wowing audiences along the way. They've come a long way, from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds, to performing at the Proms in Hyde Park, London, and at scores of festivals throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.
More recently, in April 2017 on their first Australian tour, they delighted audiences at the National Folk Festival, Canberra and Fairbridge Music Festival, WA, and were invited to the home of Bluegrass, the USA, to represent the UK in the International Bluegrass Music Association’s “World of Bluegrass" in September 2017.
Now in March 2018, they return to Australia for a longer tour that includes the National Folk Festival again, the Blue Mountains Music Festival, plus a number of other dates. They will be launching a brand new CD, 'The Bluegrass Album', full of traditional Bluegrass numbers, "the material we grew up with and still perform to this day!"

"Flats and Sharps performances at Fairbridge Festival were nothing short of sensational. The standard of musicianship, rapport with audience and high entertainment value gathered more and more momentum as they dug into the event. Their final performance to over 1000 people on the final gig was one of the festival's most significant events in recent years. I wouldn't hesitate to book this band again in the future." - Rod Vervest (Fairbridge Festival Artistic Director)
