THE MASH

"Eleven years is a decent amount of time for a band to delve into their deeper pools of passion and discover their core. And Bawn in the Mash has a deep soul indeed. Listening to their records, remembering shows from over the years, you can see the course the music has taken. Fantastic from the very beginning, Bawn in the Mash has put the wind to their collective back and explored a world of bright spots–and a few darker ones as well, maturing while remaining vibrant. But it’s difficult for words alone to describe their amazing talent and eclectic nature. To truly understand the magic that happens when these musicians gather, they must be heard. And to see the heart of it, you have to do just that: see them."

THE WESTERN KENTUCKY SOUND

Living in the heart of the Mississippi River System, Bawn in the Mash's sound is founded in the ancient tones of Western Kentucky. 
Bawn in the Mash have performed hundreds of shows across the country, beginning in 2005 with cruises aboard the Delta Queen Steamboat and other passenger vessels up and down the Ohio, Tennessee, and Mississippi Rivers. The groups live performance is quite versatile and can range from high energy late night sets at eclectic music festivals, to early morning acoustic bluegrass and roots showcases throughout the southeast. At full capacity, Bawn in the Mash features live percussion, electric and acoustic instruments, xylophones, samples, and more. However, the most important legacy this band leaves behind are in the songs they have published, and the Paducah music & art community for which they helped bring attention and energy.
