About Horseshoes & Hand Grenades

Based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades are a spirited acoustic roots quintet whose music dances around the boundaries of bluegrass, old-time, folk, and country. During a late-night jam session in their college days, friends David C. Lynch (harmonica, accordion, spoons), Russell Pedersen (banjo, fiddle), Adam Greuel (guitar, Dobro), Sam Odin (double bass), and Collin Mettelka (fiddle, mandolin) discovered an immediate chemistry and soon developed enough material to record their band's 2012 debut, Another Round. Following graduation in 2013, they released their follow-up, This Old Town, and began a steady touring schedule that would eventually establish them on the national festival circuit, where they shared stages with genre forebears like Yonder Mountain String Band, the Infamous Stringdusters, and Trampled by Turtles. A third release, Middle Western, appeared in 2015, honoring Horseshoes & Hand Grenades' Wisconsin roots and expounding their love for the wonders of nature. For its fourth album, the band set up camp at Minnesota's Pachyderm Studios, best known as the birthplace of Nirvana's In Utero album, and worked with Trampled by Turtles frontman Dave Simonett to produce 2018's The Ode. ~ Timothy Monger
