We’re a Bluegrass band based in New England. We perform traditional & original tunes & mix in some tasty covers. We've been playing together since 2005. We've been described as a hard driving, harmony singing acoustical foursome. We cover a lot of musical territory. Four Bridges is comprised of the following gentlemen.
By day, Jeremy is in college. At night, he’s an avid songwriter and bread baker. He picks & writes after he gets his two young boys tucked in bed and a couple of loaves in the oven. He makes his home in Middleboro, Ma. Jeremy plays guitar & mandolin, sings & creates a lot of our songs.
Benjamin grew up on an Rhode Island Emu farm run by his loving family. His dad Rusty was a pit man & mechanic on the stock car racing circuit & brought little Ben with him up & down the east coast. Rusty also moonlighted plowing snow & often took Ben, a pot of coffee and that Flatt & Scruggs cassette every time he left to work those long winter nights. The rest is history. Ben admires and respects the bluegrass icons & that sound is very much a part of Ben's musical chemistry. Look for Ben's Dad, Rusty, manning our record table. Ben and Rusty are Rhode Islanders. Ben sings, plays banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, violin....pretty much anything he picks up.
Greg is a classically-trained pianist who loves music. As a young boy, Greg passionately practiced Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 in between playing baseball and other boyhood pastimes like catching frogs and shooting bows and arrows. In his teens, Bill Monroe & the Stanley's caught his ear & he got to work playing that high lonesome sound. Hailing from Aquidneck Island, he is the tallest member of Four Bridges and is often the one hooting & hollering & getting everyone pumped up.
Russ is a carpenter, fisherman, and survivor of Woodstock. He's been laying down the beat for Massachusetts bluegrass bands for twenty years and counting. Russ is a family man living in Kingston, Ma. Russ plays stand up bass & guitar.
