16 year old Bluegrass banjo & guitar prodigy Ettore Buzzini and his band of young bluegrass superstars have a refreshing GenAlpha take on traditional Bluegrass, true to its soul but refreshingly new & vibrant. Ettore’s roots formed both in the Appalachian Piedmont of North Carolina and the high mountains of his father’s Swiss-Italian village. In the heart of traditional mountain music, Ettore made a name for himself as a musical prodigy on banjo and guitar when he was barely 11. Since then, he has continued to surprise with his growing talent, as he has emerged as a preeminent talent in songwriting and composition, bringing a completely fresh and modern perspective to traditional bluegrass.

Ettore's songwriting evokes emotional imagery that provides a window into the hearts of his generation. From the courage of a young warrior ready to fight the ultimate battle, to a simple lament of love and heartbreak, his lyrical themes show a masterful talent far beyond his years. His powerful songwriting is layered on a fertile bed inventive musicality. His songwriting prowess, combined with fast-pitch, virtuoso picking, soulful harmonies, and traditional bluegrass drive, garnered him a record deal at age 14, and has made him one of the hottest rising stars in Bluegrass music today. On social media, this up-and-coming musical star is followed by Billy Strings, Jeremy Garrett (Infamous Stringdusters), and other music influencers. With performances at venues like Merlefest, Tosco Music Party, FloydFest, IBMA Streetfest, and WDVX BluePlate Special on the agenda this year, his star is soaring.
