SALAMANDER CROSSING

  • From Northampton, Massachusetts.
  • Play “Amphibious Bluegrass,” a blend of bluegrass, folk and rock.
  • Formed in 1991 by Andrew Kinsey (guitar), Rani Arbo (fiddle), Jeff Kelliher (mandolin), Tim Farnham (banjo). Tony Furtado played banjo in 1995, Dave Dick (formerly with Southern Rail) in 1997.
  • Got their name from a unique New England phenomenon: Every spring, yellow spotted salamanders make their way from a local hillside to a nearby bog, and must cross a road in the process, a huge media event.
  • Group owes its existence to John Hartford, who failed to show up at a music workshop he was going to conduct in Massachusetts (1991). Workshop participants decided to just do some impromptu jamming, and that’s when Salamander Crossing was born.
  • 1998, released Bottleneck Dreams album (Signature Sounds).
  • Disbanded in 1999.
