The Stragglers

Since 2015 the Stragglers have been refining what they define as a "New-Time String Band" sound. Performing originals composed in a variety of styles along with a liberal helping of vintage country, classic rock, and a wide range of old-time music and classic Bluegrass the Stragglers truly have something for everyone in each and every performance they give. 

Where the fictitious rock band Spinal Tap was noted for their punctuality the Stragglers are defined by sheer enjoyment in performing together. Instrumental breaks, vocal harmonies, and interesting compositions and arrangements are all part of the Stragglers' sound. 

The Stragglers are Justin "Beefcake-Bulldog-Bullfiddle" Bedell (Bass/Vocals), Eric "T.M.T." Bushey (4 & 5-String Banjos/Electric Guitar/Vocals),  "Eddie Van Fiddle" (Rusty)  Charpentier (Violin/Vocals), and Preston "Eye Candy" Randall (Mandolin/Guitar/Vocals). 

Here is a selection of our original music and covers of traditional and contempary music.
