Keith Edwards


Keith Edwards has been playing his unique brand of “slap-bass style” on the upright bass since he was twelve years old. Raised in the company of Bluegrass musicians on a dairy farm in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, it was only natural for Keith to spend countless childhood hours “parkin’ lot picking” at Bluegrass festivals where he honed his style of playing.

Keith has had the opportunity to play with several groups including South Wind, Chestnut Creek, Steve Toth and Rippling River, Horse Country, the Dick Smith-Mike O’Reilly Band, Straight Drive, Byron Berline and Goldrush, The Feinberg Brothers and Redwood Hill. He has been featured on several recording projects alongside such musicians as David Grisman, Jon Sholle, Tony Trischka, Andy Statman and Kenny Kosek.
