How many strings does it take to play bluegrass with a full-on rock 'n' roll spirit? The answer is 23, as in the 23 String Band.

Riding the rising tide of eclectic, post-bluegrass, acoustic music, the young, Eastern Kentucky-based band has been hitting the festival scene hard -- including appearances at RockyGrass, Bristol Rhythm & Roots and the Kentucky Bluegrass Festival -- and developing its own way with a good, traditional melody (check the bluesy feel of "Leave Everything"), furious newgrass instrumental jams ("Catch 23") and clever covers ("Listen to Her Heart," the Tom Petty classic). File this band next to Chatham County Line and the Old Crow Medicine Show, and you might find yourself reaching for them when you need a solid progressive bluegrass fix.
