Eastbound Freight Bluegrass Band has been performing throughout Long Island and the New York Metropolitan area for 25 years. Their concert venues have included the Inter Media Arts Center in Huntington NY, the Harry Chapin Memorial Stage also in Huntington, The Lincoln Center Out-Of-Doors Festival in New York City and many others. They have performed live radio broadcasts on WKCR, WBAZ, and WUSB, and their recordings have been featured on National Public Radio’s Acoustic Connections program.

The band members (see Band Bios) share a life-long connection to the music and a love for the big bluegrass sound of the original groups: Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin & the Sunny Mountain Boys, and others. Their repertoire includes tunes popularized by these groups as well as many original songs by banjo player Bill DeTurk.

Eastbound Freight Bluegrass performs at festivals, country fairs, and libraries throughout the region. During the summer they perform evening concerts in parks from Stony Brook to the North & South Forks of Long Island. In the fall, you're likely to see the band at the vineyards of the East End of Long Island, entertaining folks most weekends during the harvest season. The band’s first release, Don’t Blame Me!, won accolades in Bluegrass Unlimited and received an achievement award from Billboard.
