The Horsenecks from Portland, Oregon, play hard-hitting and heartfelt Old Time and classic Bluegrass music. 

 

Their sound is centered around the pairing of the signature rhythmic Appalachian fiddle style of Oregonian Gabrielle Macrae, and the driving yet subtle three-finger banjo playing of Barry Southern. Gabrielle's playing style is the result of being raised in the Old Time music hotbed of Portland, Oregon. Barry's banjo playing ranges from thrilling and high-octane to moody and captivating.

 

Harmony singing and thoughtful songwriting bring this Old Time band to the stage with an exciting and varied set of upbeat foot-stompers, new takes on old standards, innovative fiddle-banjo compositions and heartfelt country and gospel songs.

 

When performing in the UK, they are joined by Chris Marshal and Alan Wright on bass and guitar. As a four-piece The Horsenecks continue to set a new standard in today's traditional music scene with appearances at major festivals in the USA and the UK. They received critical acclaim in 2015 for their self-titled debut album. Their second album, Fiddlehead was released in July, 2018.

 

"The Horsenecks are the new epitome of an epic four-piece Old-Time stringboard" -Jan Howard, OLD TIME NEWS No. 96 Winter 2018-19.
