The Foghorn Stringband is the present-day gold standard for real-deal, hard-hitting, genuine old-time American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over 15 years of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of roots musicians following their lead. American roots music is a diverse and never-ending well of inspiration, and Foghorn Stringband continually and obsessively draws from old-time, bluegrass, classic country, and Cajun music traditions in an ongoing quest to present a broad span of American historical music with an unparalleled youthful energy, joy, and virtuosity. The Foghorn Stringband comprises four master performers and historians: Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, from Orcas Island, Washington), Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar, from Farmer, Washington), Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass, from the Gaspé coast of eastern Quebec), and Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo, from Minneapolis. Each member of Foghorn Stringband exemplifies the best of the roots music traditions from their respective native cultures.
