The Lonely Heartstring Band

The Lonely Heartstring band is a five-peice bluegrass instrumentation band from Boston that plays original acoustic music ,traditional bluegrass and, as the name suggests, a swath of Beatles covers. The band formed as a response to a request for a bluegrass wedding band playing exclusively Beatles songs. A year and a half later, LHB is preparing to embark on a cross-continent summer tour from the west coast of Canada to New York. The band is young, excited, and rising fast in the New England acoustic scene. The members graduated from the Berklee, where they met, and blend passion and soul with instrumental virtuosity and three-part harmonies. Since the Beatles days, the band has moved in the direction of tradition-informed original songs and tunes as well as some of the standard bluegrass repertoire.

Playing traditional broken-hearted bluegrass with freshness and groove, the members of High Rock Mountain come from all over the country to perform together and attend Berklee. Hailing form Columbia, Mo., Sadie Currey's charismatic fiddling and sultry vocals define our sound. Singer-songwriter and guitarist Chris Rooney, a native of western Maryland, brings life and depth to the music, on and off the stage. From Portland, Ore., banjo wizard Jordan Alleman combines his love for bluegrass, old-time, and Americana music with a playfulness that complements his talent, as well as humor that keeps us in stitches. Son of resophonic guitarist Roger Williams, New England-based JD Williams adds his voice to our harmonies and his mandolin to our melodies. And New York City native Nate Sabat holds down the beat with his solid bass playing.
