Delightful voices backed by good harmonies, as well as some mighty-fine picking by all. ” - Bill Foster, Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine

— August 2020 review of "Common Ground"

Three Quarter North has performed at over 50 venues in and around the capital district including three times at the Fresh Grass Festival in North Adams, Mass., Caffe Lena in Saratoga, The Adirondack Folk Festival in Schroon Lake, and many more. We play everything from traditional fiddle tunes and bluegrass to original Americana.  Homegrown and raised on tradition, Three Quarter North exemplifies the best in American roots music.

  • Twice nominated for a capital region Thomas Edison Music Award in the Country/Bluegrass Artist of the Year category
  • Nominated in three categories in the Just Plain Folks Music Organization songwriting competition for  songs  "Too Big to Fail" "Judgment Day" and "Pony Expresso."
