Homegrown in Prescott, Arizona, Sugar and The Mint is a vibrant young contemporary bluegrass band, and the winner of the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest in 2017. (Previous winners include The Dixie Chicks and Greensky Bluegrass.) The band has shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Tommy Emmanuel, and more.
Sugar & The Mint (originally known as Generation) originated as a youth cultural music conservatory group with The Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona in February 2011. The young sextet, ranging in age from 17-21, has since developed a unique style, playing a blend of new old-time, contemporary bluegrass and indie-folk music. In addition to a bevy of spirited originals, the band’s repertoire spans many genres, including songs from artists like Bill Monroe, Robert Johnson, and even AC/DC.
Both of Sugar & The Mints two albums, Grape Flavored and Just Past Midnight, are available for purchase or streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube and elsewhere.
