For over 25 years Boston’s Bagboys have been dazzling music-loving audiences from festival, concert, and nightclub stages all throughout New England with their irresistible, from-the-heart acoustic string music. Founder Harvey Bag anchors the Bagboys with his bass and occasional guitar, and sings with the dusty soul of a cowboy fresh off the cattle drive. Frank Drake, singing and variously displaying his prowess on guitar, mandolin, and bass, is a longtime, well-known Boston music scene stalwart. Both Frank and Harvey keep the band well stocked with their original compositions, all of which are bonafide brand-new-old-time songs and future americana classics. Gretchen Bowder sings and is a respected practitioner of the five-string banjo, and takes her turn on guitar too. Gretchen shares with the Bagboys her love and appreciation of a variety of classic and lesser-known material, ranging from Appalachian melodies to favorites of the great American songbook and bossa nova.Jon Ross brings to the Bagboys his lifetime of wide musical experience, played all around the world. A typical performance keeps Jon busy switching from mandolin to dobro to guitar to bass, and singing, too. Singing, swinging, or taking it down to the old home place, the Bagboys bring warmth, humor, honesty, and musical excellence to each and every show!
