Karl Shiflett grew up in Texas with a love for “Traditional Country Music”, learning to sing and play guitar at the age of nine. His musical influences include; Roy Acuff, Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs……the list goes on. He began his professional career in bluegrass music as a side man in the 1980’s and organized “The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show” in 1993.
Highly respected by fans and peers alike “Karl Shiflett” is one of the most recognizable and identifiable names in “bluegrass music”. His passion to keep the “spirit of the past” alive in his music has gained him wide spread acclaim as a musician, singer and entertainer.
Deeply rooted in “traditional bluegrass music” he blends elements of “classic country, western swing and honky tonk” creating a sound uniquely his own. He is perhaps best known for his highly entertaining and fast paced “retro” (single mic) stage show. A nostalgic down home recreation of bluegrass and country music stage shows of the 1940’s and 50’s.
