Greg Shupe/Island Vibe: Bio

Greg Shupe has been performing around the US, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and the Caribbean since his college days in Minnesota and West Virginia. Accompanying himself on guitar (and occasionally mandolin or concertina) he has played at festivals, clubs, colleges, coffeehouses, benefits, and rallies. Thousands of people have heard him share his eclectic repertoire of folk, blues, country, gospel, bluegrass, traditional, swing, political, and humorous songs from around the country and the world. He also writes and performs his own songs, several of which are featured on his first CD - Midnight Train.

In addition to his solo gigs, he also performs with two bands, Island Vibe and Men With Issues.  Island Vibe features an eclectic collection of songs done in "Vibe" style, with Guy Dedell on vibraphone, flute, and percussion and as a trio with Duane Geruschat on bass, sax, and vocals.

Men With Issues includes Dennis Diamond on mandolin, guitar, dobro and more, Zachary Diamond on mandolin and fiddle, and Duane Geruschat on bass.  Dennis and Zach are featured on both of Greg's CDs.
