We are a modern bluegrass band pushing the boundaries of the new acoustic sound!
We have been fortunate to have played at the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Lola's in Providence, The Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, the PVD Social Club, and many more on the road and on the way.
Here is a review we recently received:
"Big River Stomp hails from West Greenwich, featuring guitarist James Studley, Jeff Budzinski, Matt Dipinto, and Jesse Burdick on banjo. Each musician brings forth a rich bluegrass background with strong vocal talents. Burdick’s styling on banjo goes from backyard to big stage having shared the stage with well known bluegrass musicians such as Bourbon Boys and String Fingers. Big River Stomp offers the sounds of traditional bluegrass, as well as the modern sounds of newgrass. Like any good cowboy story, each song tells detailed tales of life. Big River Stomp is a band not to miss in the folk roots emergence of the smallest state in the union."
