Since its formation 34 years ago, Lonesome River Band continues its reputation as one of the most respected names in Bluegrass music. Five-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Banjo Player of the Year, and winner of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass, Sammy Shelor leads the group that is constantly breaking new ground in Acoustic music. With two stellar lead vocalists, Brandon Rickman (guitar) and newest member Jesse Smathers (mandolin), and theimpressive talents of Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Barry Reed (bass), the band seamlessly comes together, performing the trademark sound that fans continue to embrace.
This award-winning band is again set to build on the familiar while adding bold progressiveness to its legend with the March 19, 2016 release Mountain Home Music Company album, Bridging the Tradition. Lonesome River Band is continuing to evolve in the ever-changing landscape of Bluegrass and Acoustic Country music. With this new album, the band once again delivers incredible, ground-breaking music that is rooted in the tradition it began decades ago.
