About

Nourished by deep roots in the expansive canon of traditional American music, The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition—an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. George Clements (guitar, vocals), Patrick M'Gonigle (fiddle, vocals), Charles Clements (bass, vocals), Matt Witler (mandolin), and Gabe Hirshfeld (banjo) bring together their own musical styles to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions showcases not only their considerable talents, but a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music. With their 2015 IBMA Momentum Award and their 2016 release of their debut full-length album, Deep Waters, on Rounder Records, there is every reason to hope that they are at the front edge of a significant career. Eager to hit the road again to promote their second album, The Lonely Heartstring Band continues bringing thoughtful, energetic, and memorable performances to audiences across the country and around the world.
