The Stable Hands

The Stable Hands Band has been growing together for the past six years and collaborating as friends and family.

With Sue and Tom Connolly, Janet and Rick Baskowski, the two couples create an acoustic sound that is completely their own contemporary style. Their goal is to play original music as an art form within the Bluegrass genre. You will feel their excitement for each other and their music.

Gravel Yard

The Gravelyard Bluegrass Band have been playing their own style of Folk Bluegrass for the past seven years.They have performed at area festivals,concert series and local fund raisers. In fact, they host a popular concert series 'Folk Fest For Food' in their home town of Cherry Valley. The band members are Phil Zenir on guitar and vocals, Jeff Philips on bango, Tripp Swart on mandolin, Dennis Walrath on bass and Butch Yager on congos. In the last seven years the band has developed a unique repertoire of driving bluegrass combined with haunting folk ballads. According to David Ring of WONE radio in Oneonta, "As a group, their love of music is obvious in their high energy shows...these guys have fun and so do their audiences.


Most members of this traditional bluegrass group hail from Barrington Township, Dundee New York, come from a long tradition of accomplished musicianship, and have been playing and singing bluegrass together for well over 40 years! If you like good solid, straight from the heart bluegrass, tight harmonies and just want to enjoy some “feel good” bluegrass music, then don’t miss “Barrington”!!!
