    5 on a String has been picking and singing bluegrass music all around the Pacific Northwest for over twenty-five years.  We have a family friendly show with plenty of hot picking and fiddle tunes to entertain just about any audience. Seniors love the old time theme and harmony singing, and the kids are attracted to the staccato sounds of the banjo and fiddle. All of our instruments are acoustic which means we are able to play without electricity and can roam over a festival site to draw attention to vendor areas or entertain people waiting in lines.  We are equally at home on main stage venues, we play and sing in the old time radio show style, using only one microphone, which is also great for “tweeners” while a stage is being reset for a larger act.  Over the years we have collected a large volume of performance material and can play for more than four hours without repeating a song. We’ll get their toes tapping and hands clapping…Guaranteed.

    We began playing as 5 on a String back in 1989, when Gordie, Garry, and Dan got together with other musicians to play together informally.  One thing lead to another and before long the band was invited to play at some of the regions most prominent Bluegrass Festivals including; Darrington, Wintergrass, and Chilliwack.  About 10 years ago founding member Carrol Oldenburg (mandolin) left the band and we were pleased to add multi-instrumentalist and lead singer Tim Eccles in his spot. Another year later Vancouver fiddle player Hugh Ellenwood agreed to enlist after the retirement of our original fiddler, Val Dean.   It’s been wonderful to perform all across B.C., Alberta, and Washington state over the years and the friends, fans, and relationships we have shared are priceless to us.
