Looking For That Honest Simplicity That Goes Straight Into The Heart

Be part of our journey to the USA

Country and Bluegrass music is filled with gut-wrenching stories of poverty, love and hardships. Whether it’s an inspiring rhythm or heartfelt song, Rookie Riot have embraced the bluegrass music since the very beginning of the band.

A dream we will make come true

Rookie Riot was started as a project for young/new people to learn the bluegrass style. The idea has since evolved into a band with the set goal to venture to the US to understand the heritage and soul of this music. Although influenced by contemporary culture and musical styles, Rookie Riot keep our heart in the trafitional, hard-driving bluegrass roots. We believe this music is best experienced live, and we know it speaks to fans across the musical spectrum.
