Stardust Stringband occupies the sweet spot found somewhere between the vibrant energy of old-time music and the minimalism of golden-era country. On stage, Stardust gather around a single microphone to captivate their audience’s attention with powerful playing and singing – bringing renewed energy into bluegrass, old-time and honky-tonk standards.
Born in Vancouver’s late-night bluegrass scene, the band is made up of S. Clements (fiddle/vocals), J.R. Proctor (banjo/guitar/vocals), D. Kovacek (mandolin/guitar/vocals) and B. Clarke (keeping it steady on the bull fiddle while singing). Together, the group uniquely blends the lonesome harmonies of bluegrass with the melodic instrumentation of old-time music. Stardust Stringband has played on festival stages throughout British Columbia and they perform frequently in Vancouver – check out their calendar to see their upcoming shows.
