Hailing from New York’s Hudson Valley, the versatile Shovel Ready String Band performs heartfelt original songs alongside up-tempo fiddle tunes, country, blues, bluegrass, and traditional ballads of love and loss. Featuring tight vocal harmonies and polished arrangements, the band has appeared at many fine local venues including the Towne Crier, Daryl’s House, Common Ground Coffee House, the Jacob Burns Film Center and the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. They are currently completing work on a second album, due out later this year.
