An endearing string band from the Appalachian mountains, The Dirty French Broads pick a few shades apart from the established Americana and Bluegrass scenes, bringing smoky ballads and boot stomping cut-a-rugs with the energy of a thousand golden retriever puppies seeing their first snowfall. This lively crew’s spirited performances and genuine ability to connect with people are a breath of fresh air in a world of big box stores and oatmeal raisin cookies.
Scott and Kate found each other in the summer of 2021 - met for the first time at a local open mic, decided to play a few tunes together and liked what they heard. Apparently, so did Josh & Jeannie - who joined the team later that year. It took about a year to find the perfect fit for our resident BUM BUM, so we were overjoyed to welcome James into our midst in Fall 2022. Basically - Scott said "we should start a band."
And Kate said "Wait...we can just do that? Well in that case...
I've got the perfect band name..."
And so - The Dirty French Broads were born.
What even is Americana? We don't know either, but we're definitely probably that. Bluegrass without the rigidity of traditional procedure, a touch of country (the good kind) and a whole bunch of whatever it is Josh does on that banjo. We're graceful but fun, like a... manatee? Flamingo? Either way - the solos are fire, the songwriting is charmingly fresh, and our spirited stage presence radiates the passion and love we share for each other, and for the thing keeping us all alive... the music.
