“Hogslop is the real deal groovilicious honkin old-time string band. Guaranteed old-time awesomeness with these fellas around!” – Abigail Washburn (Banjo Extraordinaire)
Hogslop String Band is a Nashville based band comprised of four talented young musicians hailing from Georgia & Tennessee. They create & perform cross-genre music that pushes the boundaries of what Old Time music could/should be, blending country, psych, and astounding stamina for an energetic performance. This dynamic quartette is comprised of Kevin Martin on the fiddle, Gabriel Kelley on guitar, Daniel Binkley on banjo and Pickle on washtub and standup bass. Hogslop has shared stages with the likes of Avett Brothers, Lucas Nelson, Del McCoury, Charlie Louvin, Punch Brothers, The Infamous Stringdusters, Dom Flemons, and many more.
First and foremost, Hogslop is rooted in traditional southern American old-time string band music. Each member of the band was naturally exposed to this wonderful musical heritage through family and friends–just the way traditional music has always been passed down. The band formed in 2009, and soon set about entering–and winning–every major string band contest in the South, as well as putting on epic, sweat-drenched square dances wherever space allowed.
