Blending the characteristic interplay of bluegrass instrumentation and harmonies with strong original material and exuberant energy, Fireside Collective has drawn on folk, blues, funk, and a wide variety of bluegrass sounds to create a distinctive body of work that’s all its own. Each member—Joe Cicero (guitar), Alex Genova (banjo), Jesse Iaquinto (mandolin), Tommy Maher (resonator guitar), and Carson White (upright bass)—brings a strong, original voice to his instrument. The unique contributions of different lead and harmony vocalists complement the variety in the group’s many original songs.
