"So very excited to be a part of this.... Since I started picking I've always been pulled towards the American banjos. Who can blame me, they are amazing. However, there is a new kid on the block and I'll tell you this..... I am COMPLETELY converted!" Kirk Bowman

Flats and Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk and Country, and have gained recognition for performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five incredible young musicians honed their skills in more than 300 live performances over four years charming and wowing audiences along the way.
Their new EP "Always There" showcases their song-writing, vocal and playing talent with the lead track "It's OK My Love" getting some radio play and the video gaining traction on YouTube. There are four original songs on the EP as well as a Bluegrass version of the Jesse Fuller song Ninety-Nine Years and One Dark Day.
They've come a long way from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds to performing on the Town Square stage at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London in March 2015. Along the way that have played for (and with) the Governor of Kentucky who jumped on stage to play with them, won fans at scores of festivals including Isle of Wight, Camp Bestival and many Bluegrass and Folk Festivals and performed for events for Ralph Lauren and Jack Wills shops in London.
With an album being recorded over the spring and summer in London and an experienced management team in place 2015 promises to be a breakthrough year for these five talented young men who have their sights set high.
