Bob Stump is an Americana musician raised in the suburbs of NYC. Although surrounded by urban rock music influences, Bob was always intrigued by the sounds of folk music. The artist resonated with the sounds of folk artists and began a musical career inspired by them. The troubadour performs solo and with his band at fairs, festivals, concerts, clubs, and live shows. In his early days, he won a few flatpick guitar contests and continues to burn it up on stage. Recently, the artist has been gaining a lot of exposure and moving up the musical ladder. His song, “The Rain Came Down,” won first place for the instrumental category in The New England Song Contest. Known for his authentic sound, Bob has garnered raving reviews for his performances.

Cowboy Ernie has recorded a slew of albums covering the gamut of western music. Ernie and Bob met a few years back and found a vast common ground in Bluegrass and Americana music. This ensemble is all about original music and they continue to go back to the roots of American music forms as a foundation to craft their own songs. Recently after a show, a fan commented, “It’s like Bill Monroe meets Roy Rogers on a fast train, then Doc Watson, Billy Strings, Jorma, and Ernest Tubb get on board.”
