Burnt Biscuits is a “gypsy-grass” duo from the northwest suburbs of Chicago that is steeped in the traditions of pre-war jazz and bluegrass music. Forming in 2018, founders Zach Draper and Elliott Esparza have quickly established themselves as a permanent fixture in Chicago’s thriving bluegrass scene as they continue to engage audiences with their unique approach to pop songs and traditional American classics. While music lovers will appreciate the influence that artists like Alphonso Ponticelli, Tony Rice, Nickel Creek and Django Reinhardt have on the Burnt Biscuits sound; its their unique energy and musical intuition that wins them a broader appeal among fans.
