Secondhand Strings

Secondhand Strings is a popular, Brighton-based Bluegrass and Country Music band. United by their love for the music, they perform traditional and contemporary numbers. This four-piece of passionate musicians provides hot banjo licks, fast flat pickin’ guitar, devilish double bass and heartfelt harmonies.

An energetic mix of personalities comes together to give you a charming and vibrant show of heartache songs by artists such as Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, Hank Williams, The Carter Family and more. They work their hardest to entertain and offer a performance of addictive toe-tapping music, laughter and irreverent chatter.

"A superb and uplifting live act – spot-on guitar & banjo picking, fronted by soaring vocals… with songs to raise the roof and soothe the heart."Stuart Reed - Founder of the popular Brighton Acoustic Session
