Sugarlands Spirit Stage



The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, country, jazz, rockabilly and swing styles to create their tight, high-energy string band music. Well-crafted original songs with emotional depth, masterful picking, and resonant vocal harmonies combine to forge new territories and a fresh take on Appalachian Americana music. Band members Gary Antol, Libby Eddy, Ed Croft and Joe Dep hail from the mountains and river towns of southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio.

 


Well known in the Americana music circuit throughout the mid-Atlantic region, The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers are big crowd-pleasers at The Great Blue Heron, The Three Rivers Arts Festival, Flood City Music Festival, Whiskey Rebellion Festival, Hickory Fest, Smoked Country Jam, Modesto Unplugged Music Festival, BayGrass Bluegrass, Sleepy Creek SpringDig, Laurel Hill Bluegrass Festival, and others. The band recently showcased their unique and innovative style of Appalachian roots music on a national tour, winning over new fans from Colorado to California, Arizona to Oklahoma. Their recording of “Mannington #9″, a searing tale of lives lost in a mining disaster written by West Virginia native Keith McManus, was included in Relix Magazine’s 2015 Summer CD Sampler.

 


The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers have opened for The Steeldrivers, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Black Lillies, Town Mountain, David Davis and The Warrior River Boys, Larry Keel, Jeff Austin, The Felice Brothers, Mike Compton, Grand Ol’ Ditch, The Rumpke Mountain Boys, The Hillbilly Gypsies, and Frank Solivan and The Dirty Kitchen.
