 “Let’s call ‘em a badass bluegrass quintet.” — Twangville.com 

We’re excited to welcome Mark Erelli and Zachariah Hickman back to our stage as members of this lively and popular all-star bluegrass band!

Prepare for a sonic explosion of positivity as Barnstar! gears up to release their highly anticipated third album, “Furious Kindness,” set to hit the airwaves on April 19, 2024. Unapologetically shouting in your face about how awesome you are, Barnstar! delivers an aggressively joyful and passionately positive musical experience that reflects the true mission statement of these mischievous music makers – a beacon of joy in a world that could use a bit more kindness.

The brainchild of bassist and impresario Zachariah Hickman, Barnstar! features some of the Boston area’s most dynamic seasoned musicians: Mark Erelli (vocals, guitar), Charlie Rose (banjo, vocals), Taylor Armerding (mandolin, vocals), and Jake Armerding (fiddle, vocals). Their music resonates with audiences who appreciate the artistry of traditional bluegrass as well as those who are drawn to the band’s innovative and boundary-pushing approach. The band continues to record and perform, while navigating solo careers and high profile side-person gigs (with the likes of Josh Ritter, Rodney Crowell, Lori McKenna, Elephant Revival, Ray LaMontagne, ROSIN, and many more).
