Old Sap is a banjoist and songwriter, born and raised in Chicago, who grew his musical roots in Bigfork, Montana playing throughout the Pacific Northwest. Comprising Folk, Folk Rock, Americana, and Old Time Blues, Sap's songs run the gamut from upbeat and rhythmic to soothing and contemplative, often all in the same song. Fast, old-timey clawhammer meets modern song styles and finger-picked compositions to tell stories of loss, of finding joy in adventure and uncertainty, and of learning to bear life’s ugliness with grace and a sense of humor.
Old Sap is currently based in Asheville, North Carolina. Though the ensemble varies from show to show - from solo to full-band - the current full-band ensemble of Old Sap includes Jackson Grimm on electric guitar and Jackie Barnes on Fiddle.
Old Sap has appeared at such venues and festivals across the country as Red Ants Pants Music Festival 2017 (White Sulphur Springs, MT); Casey's (Whitefish, MT); Martyrs (Chicago, IL); Uncommon Ground (Chicago, IL); over 100 bars, breweries, cafes, and music venues across Western Montana. Old Sap was also a finalist for the 2017 Brown Bag Songwriting Contest in Asheville and is a member of the NC Songsmiths.
