We do "Bluesgrass" - folk, country-blues, ragtime, country, old-timey, bluegrass and even some new tunes in our own unique style - the good time music!
This style of music that has appeared for over one hundred years in this country - musicians playing guitars, banjos, fiddles, harmonicas and other classic acoustic and "make-shift" instruments on front porches, in parlors, on street corners, at weddings and parties, and then in the jazz, folk, country music and blues joints in every major city in the nation. This music reached huge audiences in the 1930ís and 1940ís through jug and string bands; in the1950's with country and western and early rock 'n roll and again in the 1960's "folk scare".
Today, this amalgam of string band music has returned, enhance by the popularity of the movie and soundtrack of "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" and the recent resurgence of country, bluegrass and jug band music. The String Benders brings this slice of "Americana" to appreciative audiences throughout New England. Audience participation, from toe-tappin' to singing along continues to hit a resonating chord with the new fans as well as the regulars.The String Benders band includes: Brand Cedrone (harmonica, ukulele, percussion, vocals); Harry Cook (String bass, guitar, banjo, vocals); Dick Webb (guitar, banjo, vocals).
