introducing turning ground

Turning Ground is based in Salyersville, Kentucky, rooted deep in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Their style of bluegrass and bluegrass gospel is original and built around five people that simply love the music! They borrow from the traditional sounds of yesterday and blend it with the contemporary sounds of today's bluegrass to deliver a solid drive to their music.  Turning Ground is one of the most talented new, energetic bands to surface onto the bluegrass scene in years.

what people are saying...

By blending the strong lead vocals of Nathan Arnett with the steady harmonies provided by Ralph Adams, Turning Ground has developed a sound that combines both traditional bluegrass and classic country. While Turning Ground provides audiences with familiar standards in both genres, it is when the group goes to Arnett's arsenal of original tunes that the band stands out. ”

— Rita Small - Host of Bluegrass in the Valley radio show

Turning Ground is going to make noise in the music industry. Nathan Arnett is a strong and unique front man that writes a lot of the bands music. Mix that with the bands' high energy and stellar harmonies, you have something special. A must see on the bluegrass circuit!”

— Sam Karr, SamJam Promotions

Wilson Pickins Promotions proudly welcomes Kentucky based bluegrass band TURNING GROUND to the agency. 

The Wilson's met up with the band after a Festival performance several years ago in Ohio and became fast friends. Melanie Wilson says: 

"Their energy and soul during the  performance lit the crowd on fire and after meeting them I knew they were something special on and off stage. I've been a fan and we've been pals ever since."

"Eastern Kentucky is a place of pressure. Geologically and sociologically, the region is known for the power that comes from that pressure that makes for coal and great music. These fellows sure bring that power to their music. This a young band with a truckload of promise. We should be hearing much more from them as they continue on their musical journey."
