The Student Loan is an internationally touring roots and bluegrass band that has been recognized by Jazz at Lincoln Center NYC as the cutting edge of American roots music. They have worked extensively as musical ambassadors for the U.S. State Department and have performed in 16 countries on 5 continents. Borrowing heavily from a wide variety of styles their original music mixes catchy bluegrass melodies with classical and jamband forms to create an innovative new acoustic musical style distinctly their own.
The Warren G. Hardings are a high-energy stringband from Seattle, Washington. Heavily influenced by America’s roots, folk and bluegrass heritage, they belong to a generation of young musicians that continues to evolve and adapt these acoustic traditions for the 21st century. The band has a deep affinity for the music of legendary bluegrass pioneers such as Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, as well as the countless artists following in their footsteps who have helped progress the genre to the rich and diverse art form it is today.
The Warren G’s draw on this legacy and contemporary influences, ranging from pop to punk, to create a live show experience that promises a foot-stomping party atmosphere and a good time for all. Whether ripping through old standards or performing original songs, the band strives to provide an infectious energy that gets the crowd moving.
