Junior League Band plays a unique brand of Appalachian pop rock, heavily influenced by bluegrass, old-time, country, and acoustic blues.
This independent Washington D.C. based band is fronted by female vocalist, banjo and harmonica player, Lissy Rosemont, a Georgia native who draws inspiration from her family’s Smithsonian recognized 80 year-old fiddlers festival, www.fiddlersgrove.com, and her love for rock and roll.
The 6 piece band also includes drummer Will Waikart, bassist Nick Weitzel, guitarist/dobro player Elias Cohn, fiddler Sadie Dingfelder , and harmonica/banjo player Martin Thomas who was recently deported for Beijing for peacefully protesting for Tibetan freedom.
Junior League has been touring nationally since early 2007 and has garnered a number of excellent reviews for their original and independently produced music.
