Meridan Green is a California-based folk musician, and one half of Parsons Green, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Gene Parsons, former drummer with The Byrds.

History[edit]

Green was born to folk musician Bob Gibson in Greenwich Village. She moved to California's Mendocino area and began playing with the Gypsy Gulch International String Band. She also began playing bluegrass music with Gene Parsons, and they released some music commercially.

As a solo artist and duetist, her work has been featured on the BBC and New York Times as well as smaller papers such as the Lincoln Chronicle [1]. She has also performed internationally, both by herself and at numerous festivals.

In addition to her musical career, she co-created the Parsons/Green B-Bender device used in the Fender Nashville B-Bender Telecaster guitar.

In 2009, Green began a tour featuring the works of Bob Gibson as one-third of the Fare-Thee-Wells, along with John Heller and Rick Grumbecker. As of February 2009, The Bob Gibson Legacy Tour, which features several acts, was slated for 28 dates.
