There often comes a time in society when good people have to raise their collective Pitchforks and kick some Kleptocratic tail. We hope to play the soundtrack to that worthy cause. In the meantime, we will keep on playing your party, pub or theater into a freedom lovin’ frenzy.
The Pitchfork has always been an inclusive operation and we are lucky to have all the players that have joined us over the years.
John Lucey – Banjo
The part of our band that makes Bluegrass, well, Black. Ninjo. He’s only been in a couple fights from stage and they weren’t his fault. He didn’t start them but he certainly ended them. He shreds the banjo deeper and darker than a Virginia forest on a new moon.
Jayson Bowerman – Fiddle
Usually hits stage seconds after a river swim. Jayson’s violin can be sultry-sweet or psycho-shred. A true artist on an instrument or inside of one–check out his Bowerman Guitars!
Ethan Ebersold – Guitar
Reluctant front man/wall-flower. But he can write a tune you will be singing the next morning and pick a g’tar with a flavor all his own.
Joe Schulte – Mandolin
Probably Central Oregon’s busiest string musician. Seriously. Shredder.
From Sisters OR, Benji brings the true mountain flavor to this band. He’s a busy player in the local scene for a variety of great acts and also a world-class farmer and father.
