Della Mae's efforts to use music as a unifying force are consistent with the adventurous, open-minded attitude that they've maintained from the time that fiddler Kimber Ludiker originally assembled the group. Although they came together in Boston, the young players all brought diverse backgrounds and considerable musical experience to the project. After initially gaining a reputation for high-energy live performances in clubs and festivals around the country, Della Mae expanded its reputation with the self-released 2011 debut album I Built This Heart. 2013's This World Oft Can Be proved to be a sensation with fans and critics alike, earning the group a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.
Now armed with a passel of dynamic new tunes and a renewed sense of purpose, Della Mae is eager to get back on the road and introduce their new music to their loyal admirers.
