Fast Track

Friday, November 18, 2022

Q. What do you call a 2-year-old band with 200 years of professional experience? A. Fast Track, bluegrass music’s latest “supergroup”. Steve Day, Duane Sparks, Dale Perry, Ron Spears, and Shayne Bartley have been prominent former members of some of the finest bands in bluegrass.

The list reads like a pedigree of bluegrass royalty, including Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, The Bluegrass Cardinals, J.D. Crowe & the New South, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, and David Parmley & Continental Divide. With two widely acclaimed projects behind them in less than three years, Fast Track has risen to the forefront in the hearts and minds of the bluegrass community. “Bluegrass Today,” wrote, “....the brand new band everyone in bluegrass is talking about. [...] this is a bunch to be reckoned with.” You may not have seen this group before, but we have every confidence you’ll be singing their praises once you have because there’s just no stopping them, They’re on the Fast Track.
