Detour

Detour

2008-03-03

Detour is a bluegrass band from Northern Michigan. Detour combines original contemporary bluegrass sounds along with great traditional favorites. With tight focused harmonies, precision instrumentals, and creative melodies, Detour takes you down a unique bluegrass road. Featuring the high lonesome vocals and low lonesome string bass of Zak Bunce, the tasty fiddle playing of Peter Knupfer, the soulful guitar of Scott Zylstra, the hard driving mandolin and superb song writing of Jeff Rose, and the stellar banjo playing of 2007 & 2001 National Banjo Champion Mike Sumner, Detour has quickly become a standout bluegrass band – “a bluegrass joyride.” Detour has enjoyed a highly successful first season receiving great critical acclaim at numerous concerts and festivals including Dunegrass and Wheatland.
