Back to Our Roots

Folk - Bluegrass

Dan and Diana Ost of Flatlander Folk have far-flung musical roots from places like Nashville, Indiana, home of the Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival, to Georgia country rock, to Dallas' Deep Ellum blues, to Kerrville Folk Festival, to Austin's music scene, and to Florida Folk. Dan's musical family legacy incorporated a potato-bug mandolin from his Grandma, old-time songs from his Mom Nina, and guitar tunes from his double-aught-18-Martin-playing Dad. As a young adult in Indiana, he was a chef in a cafe that Bill Monroe frequented--Bill loved his fried potatoes, and Dan loved Monroe's music. A lifetime guitar player, Dan plays a beautiful Augustino guitar, made right here in Florida, and has been working on the mandolin for about a year now. Dan is also a singer-songwriter with several originals to his credit. Diana's musical experience began with a three-string, mountain dulcimer belonging to her best friend's (Chris SoRelle of the Cajun SoRelle Brothers) Cajun family, the SoRelles, Texas. As her "adopted" family, everyone played multiple instruments, and music spontaneously erupted on a regular basis. Mountain music and the Cajun influence, combined with an experience in the exploding 60's folk scene, past church choir experience, and gritty acoustic blues in Deep Elem provided the musical foundation and influence.
