Uriah Nibbe: Banjo
Uriah once said it might be interesting to play the banjo. A month after those words were spoken Uriah received a surprising birthday present — a banjo.
Uriah, 20, of Howard Lake, Minn. began playing banjo after that fateful 13th birthday. He never expected he’d end up playing bluegrass music, but as most people know: bluegrass comes with the banjo.
Seven years later, Uriah graduated from Hazard Community and Technical College in Hyden, Kentucky. He joined Blue Hazard in the summer of 2011, adding the finishing touch to the band. Uriah respects traditional bluegrass in his sound while also blending some blues and contemporary musical notes.
Uriah joined Blue Hazard because it “retains its acoustic roots while still being willing to branch out and experiment with their sound.”
In Uriah’s free time he enjoys browsing the radio for unique sounds, taking the pony out for a cart ride, exploring computer systems, and creating uses for outdated items. He is currently trying to become a computer network engineer as his profession.
Uriah is a proud member of Blue Hazard and can’t wait to get his own band T-shirt.
