1794 Meetinghouse

The Deep River Ramblers

Saturday, September 21 @ 7:30 pm


  • Chris Brashear — fiddle, mandolin, guitar
  • Jim Henry — guitar, dobro, mandolin
  • Paul Kochanski — bass

Originally teaming up to perform a Doc Watson Tribute show for Signature Sounds, the trio was and remains a natural collaboration. Their approach to music and performance is humble, direct and expressive. If you can imagine hiking in a landscape of contemporary Americana and roots music, you could easily see these “ramblers” roaming between well- known and inspirational voices like Doc Watson, Nanci Griffith, Levon Helm, Muddy Waters or John Prine. Combining fiddle, guitars, mandolin, dobro and bass, this streamlined trio brings multi-instrumental abilities to every song. The final ingredient, however, is the combination of soulful singing with great songs. On that front, The Deep River Ramblers will take you on a journey that will last long after the show is over.
