Brief History of Bass and Grass

Bass and Grass began as a matter of merging many favorites into one fabulous weekend full of music, friends, fishing and food. As Larry Keel put it, "I sing a lot of songs about fishing and we got this idea to combine these two loves we shared and get other like-minded people together for it." Bass and Grass is a dynamic event that generates A LOT of creative energy.
