We’ve got another one for you bluegrass fans out there! Tennessee’s own Forlorn Strangers, an impressive five-piece on the rise, will aptly be playing the room at Boot & Saddle this Saturday.
Comprised of sisters Abigail Dempsey (fiddle, percussion, vocals) and Hannah Leigh Lusk (mandolin, percussion, upright bass, vocals); Chris Banke (guitar, mandolin, vocals); Benjamin Lusk (banjo, guitar, vocals); and Jesse Thompson (upright bass, dobro, guitar, vocals) and formed in 2013, Forlorn Strangers are on the rise.
Forlorn Strangers have mastered a traditional boot-stomping bluegrass sound, paired it with some intense harmonies, and packed it all into their first full-length self titled album, set to be released in just a few days on August 5.
Recorded in Nashville at the Butcher Shoppe, produced by Grammy award winner Phil Madiera, and funded entirely through Kickstarter, this band has created a buzz among the Americana community and has filled some serious rooms and festival slots this summer including FloydFest and Homegrown Music Festival.
You won’t want to miss this group! Boot & Saddle, Saturday, be there!
In the meantime, check out their video for “Oh My Friends,” and see for yourselves!
