Blending traditional and new bluegrass for a unique sound

Rockfish Gap is an up-and-coming bluegrass and Americana band that is starting to make their mark on the regional festival circuit as well as select concert halls and special events. Their smooth instrumental style is complemented by layered three- and four-part vocal harmonies and innovative song arrangements. From traditional fiddle tunes and bluegrass standards to original songs written by the band, Rockfish Gap creates a unique and consistent blend of old and new, savory and sweet. Luke Neer drives the band with his five-string banjo work and provides distinctive lead vocals. Maggie Edwards sets the pace on bass while supplying lead and harmony vocals. Mitch Russell blends tasteful mandolin leads and his own vocal styles from an old-time/bluegrass/folk tradition as well as his own songs with intricate and introspective lyrics. Ralph Edwards adds guitar and vocals to the mix as well as songs from the heart. The resulting combination displays diversity of style with unity of purpose – a hallmark of Americana. The mix of traditional bluegrass, interesting acoustic country, and original songs in multiple genres makes for an eclectic show with comfort and surprises.
