The Mon River Ramblers
The Mon River Ramblers The Mon River Ramblers first began playing their unique blend of bluegrass all throughout the streets of Pittsburgh in the early stages of 2006. Moving From their humble beginnings of pickin' on street corners and avenues around the city, the ramblers began to get noticed and started pickin' in bars and venues around the Pittsburgh area. The Ramblers have polished their sound with a mix of different genre's of music to create their take on bluegrass music. Their mix of traditional bluegrass, rag-time, jazz, blues, folk, punk, and rock infused with tight pickin' keeps their brand of fiery bluegrass music innovative and fresh. The Ramblers music is a mixture of original compositions, soaring harmonies, and an innovative approach to improvisation that brings their music full circle. The Ramblers are city boys trying to bring fast-pickin', high energy bluegrass music back to Pittsburgh. In the short time the Ramblers have played together they have shared the stage with the Infamous Stringdusters, the Hot Seats, Trampled by Turtles, the Hackensaw Boys, Devil Makes Three, Mac Martin & the Dixie Travelers, Hoots & Hellmouth, Crooked Still, and Hot Buttered Rum String Band. They have also competed in two of the most prestigious festivals in the world of the bluegrass in 2009, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Delfest.
