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.
