The Stringtown project originated during the spring of 2009.
The Stringtown Project was born in 2009. To Rick Russell it seemed like an ideal way to translate the kinship and closeness the players & their families felt towards one another into the music they create & bring to you. Sharing an honest celebration of life and "the beat" are true pathways to joy and satisfaction of the soul. So through spirited performances and a mutual love of writing and record-making in the studio here we are, we're in this moment together in time searching for the perfect song, performance and recording. The journey has been a reward and welcome to our world if you are reading this for the first time!
The family has evolved over the years and the core of the group has never felt better.
