The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers

Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland, the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, jamgrass, rockabilly, and swing music to create their own brand of high energy Appalachian Bluegrass. Their goal is simple: write good songs, honor the music, have fun, and take it to the road.

Gary Antol (songwriter, guitar, vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle, vocals) formed the band in 2014. Their powerful songwriting, mesmerizing vocals and hard-driving rhythms have earned them a growing national following. In addition to a busy festival appearance schedule, they have opened for The Steep Canyon Rangers, Town Mountain, The Black Lillies, Pure Prairie League, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Larry Keel, Jeff Austin, and Cabinet.

Accompanying Gary Antol and Libby Eddy are Evan Bell (upright bass; formerly with the Hackensaw Boys) and Ray Bruckman (mandolin, fiddle, vocals; formerly with Grand Ole' Ditch).
