Info on the band: The Welfare Liners came together from the eclectic Athens, GA music scene in 2010 and combined contemporary and traditional influences to create a brand of bluegrass that has earned praise from young and old. After releasing a self-titled, six-song EP on Ghostmeat Records in 2011, the band found themselves sharing the stage with the likes of The Del McCoury Band, Dawes and Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon). As they continued to perform at bluegrass festivals and local clubs, original compositions made their way in to sets previously dominated by standards from Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and The Stanley Brothers. These new, original songs borrowed heavily from the tradition of brother harmony mastered by Jim & Jesse and The Louvin Brothers, whose songs were also mainstays of early performances by the band.
