Bluesgrassy is the term Secondhand Strings uses to describe their unique sound and style. A four-piece string acoustic band from the Four Corners, Harris Brogan, Justin Brown, Reuben Gallop, and Jeff Hibshman meld today’s newgrass funk with the roots of yesteryear’s blues and folk. Each member brings an eclectic range of influences and playing styles that is evident in the band’s original music.
Brown and Brogan originally formed Secondhand Strings as a duo and released, “Burdens” in February 2015, which led to performing an extensive schedule of shows throughout the Southwest. Hibshman, whose incredible musical background and performance resume, and Gallop’s unique banjo style and eagerness to produce new music completed the band’s current lineup.
Now a foursome, Secondhand Strings will release a new album “Western Wind” in September 2016, which resonates traditional string band themes such as whiskey and hard times with a modern musical approach that reflects the uniqueness of the band.
