The Grammy-nominated string band, Della Mae has established a reputation as a charismatic live act comprising some of the finest players in bluegrass, Americana and beyond. They recently released The Butcher Shoppe EP, in celebration they will be performing at Sellersville Theatre on May 2.
Originating from different musical backgrounds and regions across the US and Canada, each member brings distinct elements that contribute to Della Mae’s unique sound. Their music draws on different genres and perfectly balances roots-based tradition with more contemporary influences. Della Mae is embarking on a new chapter of collaboration on the heels of a year of touring with special guests including GRAMMY-winning banjo player Alison Brown, Bonnie Paine of Elephant Revival, and original Della Mae guitarist Avril Smith.
Showcasing the most-requested fan-favorites including two brand-new original compositions, the EP (recorded at The Butcher Shoppe Studio in Nashville) also features a number of guest appearances by Molly Tuttle, Alison Brown, and Avril Smith. This marks the first new music for the band since 2015’s eponymous album.
Praise for Della Mae:
“…Della Mae seems to have narrowed its priorities to one: showcasing its combination of playfulness and muscle as a performing unit.” – NPR Music

“smart and assured, a continuation of the band’s penchant for blurring the lines between bluegrass, folk, soul, and old-time traditions” -The Boston Globe
