Bluegrass Underground

Gregory Alan Isakov

Season 9 Episode 7 | 24m 41s

This native of South Africa who as a child moved to the U.S. is now a fiercely independent, DIY musician based in Boulder, CO. Influenced from a young age by Leonard Cohen, Kelly Joe Phelps and Bruce Springsteen, Isakov strikes that “balance of space and instrumentation,” with lush flourishes: twirling strings, a loping banjo, ghostly pedal steel, solid yet restrained percussion.
