"Sweetwater String Band delivers a hard drivin', boot stompin' mix of original and traditional mountain music from their home in the high sierra mountains and wild deserts of eastern California. Using a unique arrangement of guitar, upright bass, mandolin, and cello, they channel their diverse musical backgrounds into an original highly dance-able sound. Solid songwriting reflects the rollercoaster of life's ups and downs, inspired by journeys throughout America. Sweetwater String Band got its start traveling up and down the Sierra Nevada mountains and enjoying performing in living rooms, street corners, bars, and music festivals. With one member relocating to Durango, Colorado, the band is excited to venture away from the west coast and bring their music to the mountainous west and beyond."
