Exciting news!

After a mere 32 years of playing together, one of the most venerable bluegrass bands in the Boston area has released our first CD, It's a True Life.

The CD Release Party, held at Passim in Harvard Square, was a blast and we appreciate everyone who came out for it.

It's a True Life will is available from CD Baby.

Who we are

True Life Bluegrass consists of:

  • Steve Watt, banjo and mandolin
  • Ellen Hays, guitar
  • Eric Levenson, bass
  • Tony Watt, mandolin and guitar
  • Laura Orshaw, fiddle


We're very pleased to announce that our brand new CD, It's a True Life, has been released!



 We've selected 15 of the songs that best represent our band in terms of vocal and instrumental variety; it's music that we think, in the words of one of those songs, "makes the world a better place". Mike Reese (of Chasing Blue) recorded and mixed the record. We are very excited and pleased to have the chance to capture the sound of the band performing some of our favorite songs from the past three decades, and are delighted to be able to share it with everybody!
