PA Bluegrass comes to Baltimore with two Delfest alumni, The Jakob’s Ferry Straggles and Serene Green!
The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers
Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from Old-Time, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and Swing music to create their own brand of high energy, Appalachian Bluegrass. Gary Antol (guitar/vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle/vocals) founded the band in 2014 with a very simple goal: write good songs, honor the music, and take it to the road. In the time since, JFS has appeared at festivals and clubs all across the country.
Serene Green is the collective musical vision of Pennsylvania natives Quentin Fisher (mandolin), Michael Johnson (guitar), Shane McGeehan (bass), and Steve Leonard (banjo), who share a common goal to produce a sound which highlights their original compositions and youthful energy, within the style of traditional bluegrass.
