Country bluegrass enthusiasts, brace yourselves for an exhilarating musical journey as The Often Herd sets out to conquer the UK with their vibrant and soulful tunes. This tour is not just a series of concerts; it’s a celebration of bluegrass music’s rich heritage and its evolution into the modern era.

About The Often Herd: Hailing from the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne, The Often Herd stands out as a beacon of talent in the UK’s Bluegrass, Americana, and Roots scene. Their music transcends traditional boundaries, creating a transatlantic sound that’s deeply colored by the natural and industrial landscapes of Northern England. Winners of the European Band Contest at La Roche Bluegrass Festival in 2018, their unique approach has captivated audiences across the continent.

The band comprises:

  • Rupert Hughes on guitar
  • Evan Davies on mandolin
  • Niles Krieger on fiddle
  • Sam Quintana on bass

Together, they write songs steeped in personal experience, drawing from a wide pool of influences that range from old-time music to psychedelia. Their tight vocal harmonies, driving energy, and dazzling instrumental interplay have earned them high praise:

“Traditional, inventive, tight and sharp […] for those who think they don’t like bluegrass this could be the point they change their minds.” - Tom Franks, FolkWords

“A study in virtuosity from a supremely talented group of musicians.” - Claire Dupree, NARC
