BG Situation Mixtape

Ed Helms and Co. have a cool thing brewing out on the West Coast: The LA Bluegrass Situation. First they started a festival in LA, now roughly 3 years old, which has featured some of the biggest names in acoustic music (Gillian and Dave, Jackson Brown, Andrew Bird, the Steeps, the Dusters, Punch Bros, Sara & Sean Watkins, etc) as well as some of the biggest names in Hollywood (Ed, Steve Martin, John C Reilly, Will Arnett).

Their new site proudly proclaims the Situation as “Southern California’s home for everything bluegrass, folk and Americana.” It’s a resource for players and students, a calendar of relevant shows, and more.
