Act of Congress is a Birmingham, Alabama based singer-songwriter group. They play only acoustic instruments in their music, giving them a sound that is unique, meshing several genres of music together. The group's founding members, Chris Griffin and Adam Wright, met in college. Wright, a pianist, and Griffin, a guitar player, were interested in converging the sounds of progressive bluegrass with softer pop melodies on acoustic instruments. In 2006, Tim Carroll, an upright bass player, was added to play instrumentation and in 2007, Bethany Borg joined the group after leaving several years performing in Branson, Missouri.
Act of Congress has also played alongside several Symphonies, including the Alabama Symphony Orchestra in their annual "An Alabama Christmas" concert. The group has also been the opening act for Toby Keith and John Mayer
