CHOPPED LIVER BLUEGRASS BAND (Hamilton)

May 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

Biography:

Chopped Liver is a Canadian acoustic trio playing modern bluegrass with a focus on timeless songwriting that weaves storytelling, lush vocal harmonies, and lightning-fast picking.

Based in Hamilton and Toronto, Chopped Liver is comprised of Andrew Ivens on guitar, Adam Vrankulj on double bass, and Victor Vrankulj on banjo. Chopped Liver has a monthly residency in Hamilton and regularly brings their sound to stages across Ontario.

Chopped Liver’s live show is performed around a single microphone in the tradition of Flatt & Scruggs and features a constantly growing repertoire of original songs, a handful of contemporary covers in their signature acoustic style, and fresh takes on classic bluegrass, folk, country and old time favourites.

Debut Album:

Chopped Liver’s self-titled debut album was recorded and mixed at Hazy Grove Recording Studio in Hamilton, and released in April 2019. It features 11 original bluegrass songs that tell the stories of ordinary Canadians — Maritime rum runners, Klondike prospectors, Toronto bank robbers, and a wide assortment of Northern ramblers – the whole checklist if you’re a Canadian bluegrass band.
