The focus of the band is to continue to develop it’s sound and styles of “American New Grass”,  blend in more contemporary styles, and bring to the stage and CD more original tunes written by Jim, Greg and Mike.

In delivering their show to audiences the Sawdust Symphony tries to arrange sets to maximize the listening pleasures of the festival, private parties, or night club venues.  The mix is never the same, the music is fresh and lively, and everyone has a great time.
