Grass Burrs, May5, 2018
2018-05-18, The Grass Burrs: All the members of the Grass Burrs started as a group called Island Texas playing what they call "Texas music with a Caribbean flavor," which was everything from Johnny Cash and Jimmy Buffet to ZZ Top. After 17 years of playing all across the state including the famed Gruene Hall, the group decided to get back to their first love of Bluegrass music and the Grass Burrs were formed. The group consists of Skip Brownlow (mandolin, guitar) and wife Becky (bass), their son, Jeremy (JB) (vocals, banjo, dobro, guitar, fiddle) and JB?s wife, Brandi (guitar), and Brandi's dad, Ken Burks (mandolin, vocals), and star of the group, CC Lopez (mandolin, vocals) Music was the mainstay in the Brownlow household. There was never a time that the Brownlow's were not involved in some group playing somewhere! CC has been with the group for about three years and adds much glitter and glam to the shows as well as booming vocals with an incredible range.
