More about Dirty Blanket from

Dirty Blanket have toured the American Northeast, making names for themselves on festival circuits and in cities like New York, DC, Baltimore, Burlington, and beyond. To date, they’ve shared stages with some of the highest profile names in bluegrass including Billy Strings, The Del McCoury Band, The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin Band, Kitchen Dwellers and more.

​The seeds of Dirty Blanket were planted in 2013 at the meeting of guitarist Max Flansburg and singer/songwriter Kevin O’Leary. Combining an array of influence with a passion for creating original music, the two began playing as an acoustic duo, utilizing what free time their other musical projects allowed to share their latest material with audiences across Upstate NY. Over the following years, regional musicians Richie Colf and Joel Fedkiw, along with some of the best upright bassists in the NY region, rounded out the band lineup as the 5-piece, fast-paced, alternative improvisational bluegrass band they are today.
