Cast Iron Filter

Cast Iron Filter is a band based in Davidson, North Carolina. Their genre is similar to that of Progressive Bluegrass, but Cast Iron Filter's fans call it "Irongrass." The band had been praised for its instrumental finesse and has been related to a Jamband that knows when to stop; they could even be considered a hayseed Nickel Creek.

Former members include Tim Helfrich (drums), Mason Bissett (bass), Jim Ashton (steel guitar), Howie Cockrill (fiddle/bass), and Randy Culbertson (Guitar).
