The Bluegrass Brothers are known for their hard driving playing and high lonesome family harmonies. The style of music they play makes them a favorite at bluegrass festivals. They are known for putting on one of the most electrifying shows on the festival circuit. Many times they are put on in the festival closing slot due to the high number of encores demanded by the audience.
Brothers Robert and Victor Dowdy formed the band in 1989 after both had been members of the family group The Bluegrass Playboys. The Bluegrass Brothers have gotten high reviews for their 2005 album Old Crooked Trail. The band won instrumental group of the year at the SPGMA awards in 2010.
In September 2011 Victor & Robert Dowdy were inducted into the Virginia Folk Music Association Hall of Fame, joining other Virginia music Hall of Fame members that include Patsy Cline, The Statler Brothers, Jimmy Dean, Mac Wiseman, Tony Rice, The Stanley Brothers & others. The band still tours all over the US & Canada.
