“If Jerry Garcia, Ryan Adams, and Tony Rice had a baby Bunch of Stranger's would be their first born....or something like that ”
Bunch of Stranger’s Jon Cumming, singer-songwriter and founding member of the New England Music Award's 2013 Best Americana Act Hot Day at the Zoo, has shared the stage with such greats as Levon Helm, Yonder Mountain String Band, David Grisman, Grace Potter, RailRoad Earth, The Infamous String Dusters,The Devil Makes Three and Hot Buttered Rum String Band. After relocating to Colorado Bunch of Strangers was formed and features some of the finest talent from Colorado and Boston to create a sound that is true Independent Americana. Inspired by the sounds and writing of Stanley Brothers, Jerry Garcia, Bruce Cockburn, Bill Monroe, Tony Rice, John Hartford, and Levon Helm to name a few , Bunch of Strangers delivers an energetic, groove-friendly mix of folk, blues, ragtime, swing and jazz with progressive bluegrass and Americana-infused rock and roll.
According to the revered music critic, Steve Morse of the Boston Globe; “Jon Cumming's "Long Way Home," is a gentle change of pace from the string band flash."
