The High & Wides project a big, driving sound—mountain musical traditions re-imagined for a new century. With roots in urban Baltimore and the rural Delmarva peninsula, they draw on bluegrass backgrounds and weave in influences from new wave to old time to make music that defies boundaries while evoking the era when country, bluegrass, western swing, and early rock’n’roll mingled freely.
There are three High & Wides albums: 2018’s “Lifted” (named for the gear theft that forced the band to re-record the completed album from scratch) and 2019’s “Seven True Stories” feature the band’s strong songwriting and arranging, and 2022’s “Blood: Family Harmony Classics” highlights H&W’s roots with covers of songs by family harmony groups such as the Kershaw Brothers, Maddox Brothers & Rose, and the Carter Family.
