Menu Sweetwater String Band - Cello Drive High Sierra Bluegrass

Sweetwater String Band is a cello driven bluegrass band founded in the Eastern Sierra of California in 2008. Their music blends Chatham County Line style lyricism with Yonder Mountain String Band style energy, wrapping audiences in an enthusiastic dance atmosphere as well as an introspective thoughfulness. The band is excited to be touring more this summer with festival appearances at RapidGrass, YarmonyGrass, and the Lost Sierra Hoedown, in addition to two recent tours along the West Coast. In 2014 they released “River of Rhymes” which Gideon Thomas of No Depression described as: "a work of both intimacy and wide-scale, cinematic vistas…instantly likeable, a truly worthy listen. The songs are great, their playing immaculate, and their approach and subject matters fascinating.”

"Truly a new twist to the old mountain sound we call bluegrass. More like Heartgrass. Or Soulgrass. Riveting." - Bergamot Alley, Healdsburg, CA, 2015
