C.B. Smith & the Lucky Devils

 Catskill, New York, USA
BandFolkBluegrass

A modern bluegrass quartet anchored in tradition but experimental-minded enough to mix in folk, rock & roll, swing jazz, gypsy and chamber music influences, performing mostly original songs plus material from writers as diverse as Richard Thompson, Stephen Foster, Bill Monroe and Tom Petty.

Biography

Based in NY’s Hudson Valley, C.B. SMITH & THE LUCKY DEVILS have been tearing up venues around the Northeast, performing at clubs like The Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, Banjo Jim’s in NYC and Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs, and our favorite local haunts and dives.

The band members are:
Megan Gugliotta - vocals, fiddle, cello
Jason Borisoff - vocals, mandoiln
Bill Strohm - vocals, upright bass
C.B. Smith - vocals, guitar

Our M.O. is to remain true to the high & lonesome sound that makes bluegrass so distinctive while pushing the envelope in new directions, with a bit of chamber music, jazz harmony and rock & roll attitude stirred in. I mean, how many bluegrass bands feature a cello?
