My Dad's Truck is a group of acoustic players with diverse backgrounds ranging from porch playing to classical performance. They draw their musical selections from the best songs of the last six hundred years, performing them with a vigorous and contemporary edge.

The band was founded during a production of the musical review WOODY GUTHRIE'S AMERICAN SONG in 1996. They recently re-visited that show as the show band in the Sherman Players' 2004 production in Sherman CT.

The founding principle of My Dad's Truck was to keep alive the American song - music that survives on the strength of the words and ideas within the song. Through this approach to music they have found themselves addressing swing, jazz standards, and traditional American music, as well as Celtic, European, and Latin pieces, and the best of the new acoustic and folk rock genres.

The diverse backgrounds in My Dad's Truck mesh together and result in a multi-faceted presentation of music that all ages enjoy. The Truck brings a combination of rich, fresh rhythm, classic harmony lines, and far-reaching improvisation to everything they play. Performing around a single ribbon microphone in the tradition of the Carter Family, My Dad's Truck draws from a repertoire of over 200 songs, investing each with unique harmonies, diverse instrumentation, and an improvisational spirit that seeks always to get the audience involved.
