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 Strangers

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."
