Colebrook RoadColebrook Road
A 5 piece string band that creates original music through banjo, mandolin, upright bass, guitar, dobro and fiddle – Colebrook Road achieves a 20th century sound through 21st century songs. Based out of Harrisburg Pennsylvania but performing all over the MidAtlantic region, Colebrook Road is an original band. Almost ninety percent of what they perform is from original compositions from within the band. The unique sound of the band comes from years studying music theory and bluegrass music in particular, while putting a modern spin on that old sound through original songwriting and arrangement of three and four part vocal harmony.

The main focus of the band is that hopefully a person who comes to enjoy or listen to their show will leave a little happier, a little more at ease, and can honestly say they had a good time! The show consists of several songs the band has written, hard-pounding bluegrass standards, oldies, and various gospel numbers.
