What happens when you bring together a bass-playing attorney, guitar-strumming bilingual reading specialist, fire-on-the-fiddle volcanologist, and a banjo-picking elementary school principal? Correct if you circled “c) Fadin’ by 9”. With hot pickin’, tight harmonies, and a mix of “bluegrassified” rock, folk, and bluegrass covers & originals, Fadin’ by 9 creates a unique, uplifting, high-energy sound. Formed in 2005, this Vancouver, Washington-based band just released their first CD, cleverly self-titled “Fadin’ by 9” (hey, if The Beatles can do it…).
Joe Lapidus (banjo & vocals), Dave Irwin (guitar & vocals), Ben Shafton (bass & vocals), and Seth Moran (fiddle & vocals)
