“A brilliant and free-thinking mind…you’ll be glad to know him” – Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers)
Boston-based Stash Wyslouch (Pronounced Stash Why-Slouch) is one of bluegrass’ great young genre-bending pioneers. He got his start as a guitarist in metal bands before immersing himself in the structures of roots music as a member of progressive bluegrass act, The Deadly Gentlemen. Stash is currently a member of Old Time music trio Molsky’s Mountain Drifters (alongside Bruce Molsky and Allison DeGroot) and leads his own group of original music, The Stash! Band, which features Sean Trischka on Drums, Duncan Wickel on Fiddle and Noam Wiesenberg on Bass.
Since graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2010 Stash has toured with several different acts, most notably the progressive bluegrass band, Rounder Recording Artists The Deadly Gentlemen. During his time with The Deadly Gentlemen, they released two albums of original music, "Carry me to Home" (2011) and "Roll me, Tumble Me" (2013). His resume also includes membership in The Boston Boys, Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers. Wyslouch has travelled twice as a US State Department sponsored musical ambassador to countries such as Laos, Timor-Leste, Estonia, Romania and Korea.
Stash has shared the stage with The Del McCoury band, David Grisman, The Yonder Mountain Stringband, Sarah Jarosz, Chris Thile, Peter Rowan, Michael Daves, Darol Anger, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, and performed at many well-known festivals and venues including Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival (Oak Hill, NY), Old Settler's Music Festival (Austin, TX), Northwest String Summit (Portland, OR), DelFest (Cumberland, MD), Rockygrass (Lyons, CO), Big Sky Big Grass (Big Sky, MT), Merlefest (Wilkesboro, NC), Savannah Music Festival (Savannah, GA), and River City Roots (Missoula, MT).
