“TASHI AND KAJ LITCH ARE THE BLUEGRASS MUSIC OF THE NEXT GENERATION. THEY PLAY WITH STYLE AND ACCOMPLISH WHAT SOME WOULDN’T EVEN TRY.” ~THE BLUEGRASS STANDARD
“LAST NIGHT WAS A BLAST! THE SPIRIT OF JIMI HENDRIX, MIKE MCCREADY FROM PEARL JAM, TASHI AND KAJ [LITCH] AND THE INCOMPARABLE SEATTLE SYMPHONY…I THOUGHT THE ROOF WAS GOING TO BLOW OFF BENAROYA HALL.” ~BRANDI CARLILE
“...BLEW LISTENERS AWAY WITH FIDDLE MUSIC SO LITHE AND SUPPLE IT MADE YOU WONDER IF KAJ MIGHT BE THE NEXT MARK O’CONNER.” ~PAUL BARROS, SEATTLE TIMES
With their feet firmly planted in rootsy, mountain bluegrass, this young brother band from a small Pacific Northwest island brings a new energy to the form with their fast-picking style and brotherly harmonies.
Still in their teens, Tashi and Kaj Litch have already “blown the roof off” Seattle’s Benaroya Hall with Brandi Carlile and Mike McCready, and entertained standing – room-only crowds at venues around the Northwest.
Playing and learning with world-class musicians since they were knee-high to their instruments, the brothers have shared the stage with Brandi Carlile, Balsam Range, Darol Anger, Doyle Lawson, Sierra Hull and many others.
The birth and rise of Brograss was the subject of the award-winning film “It Takes an Island,” which was featured at the 2018 Seattle International Film Festival, and in 2015, Tashi and Kai performed a TEDx Talk on the power of music in rural communities.
Brograss brings their mix of traditional and original bluegrass as a duo with guitar, mandolin, fiddle and voice, and also performs as a quartet adding upright bass and fiddle.
