your friendly neighborhood bluegrass band that got a little...derailed.

By & By - your friendly neighborhood bluegrass band. Live from Washington, DC.

By & By is a bluegrass band from Washington, DC. The group of six musicians boasts traditional instrumentation and regularly pays homage to the bluegrass canon, but By & By puts its own unique stamp on the genre through its distinctive song-writing, powerful arrangements, and an energetic stage show. Whether they’re playing original compositions or time-tested Flatt & Scruggs tunes, you always know that you are listening to By & By.

By & By has released two CD’s, including the all-original Get it While You Can in 2013. The group has played many of the top venues in the DC area (The Kennedy Center, Kingman Island, Gypsy Sally’s, Iota Café) and has achieved notable success in bluegrass competitions (First Place – 2012 Mid-Atlantic Bluegrass Band Competition; Second Place – 2013 Watermelon Park Band Competition).
