Sawtooth Brothers 2006 - 2019

Farewell Show - Labor Day 2019 - Laughing Waters Festival

The Birtzer and Moravec brothers first met and began playing music as Sawtooth / Sawtooth Bluegrass Band / Sawtooth Brothers about 14 years ago. It's been a wild ride, and we've had so many amazing experiences, and on Labor Day 2019, at the Laughing Waters Festival, we played our 423rd and final show together.

It's hard for me to express all my emotions about this, because over half my life has been spent with Sawtooth. Through all the changes in life, this band has remained a constant, and I am so proud of my band mates / brothers for all the hard work that took. And, I am so thankful to our families without whom this couldn't have happened.

" transcends tradition. The songs are full of complex instrumental arrangements, meticulous harmonies, and sophisticated lyrics."

"...exceedingly complex material with technical precision...I expect the sky’s the limit for Sawtooth Brothers and One More Flight."

"With One More Flight, the Sawtooth Brothers prove themselves to be talented musicians who are willing to embrace a number of musical styles across the confines of a single album. The acoustic pop-style songs are very enjoyable (though fans who remember them from their bluegrass days might yearn for their older sound), and they tackle the progressive, bluesy grass numbers with lots of energy. The band will surely appeal to a broad base of listeners, and could easily choose from a number of musical paths to follow."
