The Chiggers

The Chiggers


The Chiggers play country like it was meant to be; based in the by-gone sounds of true country from the '50s-'70s and the alt-country outlaws that brought that same heartbeat into a new era.


The Chiggers, like many bands, arose from relationships built over time; musicians that played and hung out together through time and many long-gone bands. Wes Edwards and drummer Chip Farnsworth had collaborated in several bands (The Stumbling Wallys, Death and Taxes, The Circuit Riders), but always bonded over a love of great harmonies, and great stories. Finally finding the glue that is the basis of many great country bands, they hooked up with Tim Stanton and brought pedal steel into the mix. Chip's long history in the Richmond, VA music scene helped him quickly locate another kindred soul in Paul Lipscomb to fill the bass slot, and The Chiggers were born. Although a new band, they share a long history in a preference for "real country" and the original outlaws that shunned the "new country" scene and played it the way it's been played for years.
