RHP’s Annual Ridgefest Ft. The Sapsuckers
The Sapsuckers write and perform original country music that blends
humor, heartache, and honkytonk. Featuring lead vocalist Nikki Grossman (fiddle, vocals, guitar) and anchored in the songwriting team of Grossman and Joe Hart (guitar, vocals, mandolin), the band’s style ranges from hillbilly roots to Nashville pop, while their engaging performance style has earned a growing fanbase in the Midwest and beyond. They are certainly loved here at home. Formed as an acoustic duo in 2013, the couple began performing with a backing band in 2019, and is currently booking shows in both configurations. Their fourth studio album will be released in 2022. Recorded at Native Sound Recordings in Saint Louis and co-produced by Ryan Koenig (Pokey La Farge, Rum Drum Ramblers), the new record features the expanded lineup of the band.
