Fri, Jul 14th, 8-10pm, Concert – 5 on a String - Bluegrass/ Old Time / Country Gold

“There’s a lot of music in this band”

5 on a String has been picking and singing bluegrass music all around the Pacific Northwest for over twenty-five years.  We have a family friendly show with plenty of hot picking and fiddle tunes to entertain just about any audience. Seniors love the old time theme and harmony singing, and the kids are attracted to the staccato sounds of the banjo and fiddle.  We’ll get their toes tapping and hands clapping…Guaranteed. 

We began playing as 5 on a String back in 1989, when Gordie, Garry, and Dan got together with other musicians to play together informally.  One thing lead to another and before long the band was invited to play at some of the region’s most prominent Bluegrass Festivals including; Coombes, Darrington, Wintergrass, and Chilliwack.  About 10 years ago we were pleased to add multi-instrumentalist and lead singer Tim Eccles, and a year later Vancouver fiddle player Hugh Ellenwood agreed to enlist.

It’s been wonderful to perform all across B.C., Alberta, and Washington state over the years and the friends, fans, and relationships we have shared are priceless to us.   We hope that we can bring our brand of mountain music to your venue someday soon.
