[JAM-GRASS] In a genre split between standout newcomers and long-running staples, one listen to Greensky Bluegrass’ latest effort, Handguns, is enough to quietly slip the Michigan group into the latter category. However, the countrified-roots band consistently delivers onstage in spite of its studios albums’ lumbering sameness and lack of “Wagon Wheel” moments. Songs peak 10 minutes in, when the harmony-dipped melodies finally settle and Anders Beck’s dobro slides in a la the Jerry Douglas Express. The blue-collar lyrics are a nice touch, but it’s the rustic jams that have warranted the band its two-night slot here.
