Northwest Folklife Festival

Mosaic Stage, Seattle Center

The NW Folklife Festival is featuring four professional bands at the Mosaic stage, and the Weavils were fortunate enough to be selected as one of them.

Phinney Ridge Farmers Market

Phinney Ridge Community Center

Yep, playing for carrots again, getting back to our roots, so to speak. This should be a blast, as the Weavils get to busk at the Phinney Ridge Farmers Market

Annual BBQ

Ballard Senior Center

The Weavils were honored to play for the Ballard Senior Center for their New Years celebration. And were immediately asked afterwards to play at the annual picnic, which was a GREAT way to start the New Year

Magnusson Park

Amphitheater

The Seattle Parks and Rec Department asked the Weavils to play at their Magnusson Park concert series. A great outdoor event!

News flash!

In 2013 we submitted two instrumentals to the International Songwriting Contest. We just found out that Celtic Celebration made it into the semi-finals. That's out of 19,000 entries. Wish us luck as they pick the finalists.

In 2012, the Weavils entered four songs into the Great American Songwriting contest. Two songs were chosen as finalists in two different categories, Fishing Song (Folk/Americana) and Starlight Reel (Instrumental).

About Us

Leading this Seattle Bluegrass band is the entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless, the band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse.

You will hear not only bluegrass, but Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass”, Hawaiian and even a rendition of a recent pop song made famous by Norah Jones.

Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented fiddle and mandolin player, Mark Steudel.

All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides the sweet harmonica interludes.

The rhythm section, led by Pete Thorn (guitar) and Mike Karbowski (bass), keeps the band on the beat.

No introductions could be complete without mentioning the mellow baritone voice of David Grout, who elevates the vocal numbers to stratospheric heights.
