Inspired by a fierce loyalty to the most traditional aspects of bluegrass and old-time mountain music, Ohio-based Dry Branch Fire Squad draws its audience into the ancient emotional resonances in which bluegrass is rooted, and provides a strong taste of the culture in which it evolved.

Led by its founder, Ron Thomason, Dry Branch Fire Squad has been keeping the faith for over three decades, currently with the capable collaboration of band members Dan Russell, Brian Aldridge, and Tom Boyd. Together they combine traditional bluegrass and old-time tunes with wry humor and cultural commentary, concocting a performance that is alternatively soul stirring, politically edgy, and hilarious. It's no wonder that the quartet has become an audience favorite throughout northern California, from their annual shows at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to return performances at the Strawberry Music Festival!

Dry Branch Fire Squad's most recent release is Echoes of the Mountains (Rounder).
