Nourished by deep roots in the expansive canon of traditional American music, The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition—an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. This multi-talented group of musicians is a Bluegrass quintet insofar as they’re far greater than the sum of its parts, but unlike a traditional Bluegrass band, their music stretches far beyond any genre-specific title. Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions showcases not only their considerable talents, but a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music.
Since their beginnings in 2012, The Lonely Heartstring Band has been on the rise and shows no sign of slowing down. With their 2015 IBMA Momentum Award and the release of their debut full-length album on the legendary Rounder Records label, there is every reason to believe that they are at the front edge of a significant career. Already they have generated a devoted following of music-lovers across North America, performing and headlining at major music festivals and historic venues from Western Canada to California, from Kentucky to New Hampshire. Whether it’s a festival stage, theatre, or intimate listening room, The Lonely Heartstring Band always delivers a dynamic, diverse, and heartfelt performance. The band has crafted shows that generate a genuine connection and bring crowds to their feet. We welcome them to the Opera House in Boothbay Harbor this winter!
