Dry Diggins Stringband
The Dry Diggins Stringband has only recently sprouted from the fertile soils of ther Sierra Nevada foothills of California from roots tapped deep in oldtime and bluegrass music. Their music is handmade and homegrown, playing old songs that sound new and new songs that sound old, with a few tunes that might belong to a time all their own. Drawing deep from the well of tradition American music, the Dry Diggins Stringband has cultivated original music that pays homage to the sources and traditions from which they sprung.
Consisting of former members of the Pine Street Ramblers ( JD Gardemeyer, Pak Foley, and David Cox) who recorded two full length albums and toured Europe several time in the years 2014 - 2019, have reemerged from the woods with new music that showcases their songcraft and instrumental chops.
With years of musical camaraderie under their belt, an album of all new original music in the works, and captivating live performances, the Dry Diggins Stringband is a musical experience not to be missed!
