Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers Live in the Courtyard
“The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers are a daring and talented young bunch, and I can only hope that they manage to reach out and unite the bluegrass and old-time communities as easily as their music does.” -Bluegrass Unlimited
Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from Old-Time, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and Swing music to create their own brand of high energy, Appalachian Bluegrass.
Gary Antol (guitar/vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle/vocals) founded the band in 2014 with a very simple goal: write good songs, honor the music, and take it to the road.
“This old-time/bluegrass style quartet…provides a much appreciated lift of fresh and thoroughly engaging music…a band that could literally rock a dance tent with nonstop energy.” -Mark Panfil, buffalobluegrass.com
