Sam Bartlett on mandolin and jaw harp;
Max Newman on guitar, mandolin, and piano;
Stuart Kenney on upright bass, 5- and deep 6-string banjos, and tenor guitar; &

Stringrays is an inimitable five-some of musicians with a shared interest in exploring great fiddle tunes. Their playing is fueled by a love of the living tradition of New England fiddle music and its cousins. Fiddler Rodney Miller headlines the group with his signature lyrical, swingy style.

Stringrays are now hot off the release of their album, Ticket to Nowhere (listen on their website or on Bandcamp), featuring the 5-piece band in rare form. By special arrangement, the full band will be at the GODS Weekend having a rollicking time.

Chimney Swift
Cecile Leroy on cello;
Zoe Madonna on accordion;
Daniel Raine on cittern and guitar; &
Yaron Shragai on percussion and recorders.
