Featuring inventive solo work, driving rhythms and three-part vocal harmonies, New Cumberland’s musical integrity and joy in playing together resonates in every performance. The resumes for the various individuals in New Cumberland include bluegrass stints with The Dixie Flyers, Rural Retreat and Cumberland Wail – as well as wide ranging experiences outside bluegrass in rock and folk music. Proficient in the straight ahead driving bluegrass of Bill Monroe and Jimmy Martin, New Cumberland also stretches the genre in directions taken by The Seldom Scene, John Hartford and Jerry Garcia’s Old and in the Way. Songs from non- bluegrass artists such as the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Willie P. Bennett are also liable to appear on a New Cumberland set list.
“The boys in New Cumberland never fail to deliver an entertaining mix of classic bluegrass songs along with lots of great material pulled from other traditions – old and new. Solid lead vocals, sweet harmony singing, and some of the finest instrumental playing you’ll hear anywhere. It’s always a great show.” - Ian Bell, The Crooked Stovepipe, Villa Nova
