From fairs, festivals and backyard parties, all the way to famous Cinema Bar on the Westside, SAWTOOTH serves up a mean slice of Americana. Born from a collision of the local roots movement and “Bluegrassers” from www.Meetup.com, bassist Ray Echlin handpicked this motley crew of Long Beach troubadours.
In addition to Echlin on the upright fiddle, members of this unbroken circle include Sean Blake and Lu Urquidi, both on guitar, Steve Hartnell on the mandolin and fiddle, Ted Smith on the banjo and dobro, Hobey Echlin on percussion, and Hannah Mitchell on vocals.
With sounds from the heart of Texas to deepest Appalachia, and everywhere in between, SAWTOOTH’s live sets are peppered with nostalgic classics and strong originals.[adrotate banner=”4″]
