Biography

The Wayfaring Strangers are a number of things: a band, an album, a project, and a new way to play American music. In their incarnation as a band, they have been called "the most potent supergroup in folk music" by the Boston Herald. Most importantly, the Wayfaring Strangers seek to find spiritual common ground between different styles of music: among which include jazz, bluegrass, folk, Klezmer, Celtic, and chamber music.

A collective fronted by visionary violinist Matt Glaser, the Wayfaring Strangers present a bold, successful experiment in Americana. This all-star assemblage of players and singers, whose pedigrees extend across innumerable genres, first set out years ago to seek the heart of American music in a deft blend of modern and traditional styles.
