Thanks for considering A Sudden Tradition for your event.
Live music is the best!



A Sudden Tradition performs a wide variety of Americana music: bluegrass, folk, old time, country, standards, contemporary, and original songs–all with that traditional roots sound.  We can appear as a four-piece group or five-piece, adding a fiddle player.

AST is strong on vocal harmony and group members pass around the lead singer hat, creating a nice variety in the sound. Performances are upbeat and wide ranging, offering a barn-burning instrumental one moment, followed by a compelling traditional ballad or perhaps a feel-good western tune. Instrumentation includes guitar, banjo, upright bass, mandolin, and fiddle.

The combined group performing experience spans hundreds of shows from festival main stage and company events to farmers markets, weddings, and other family celebrations.

Select A Sudden Tradition for your event and put your mind at ease. We are 100% on time and reliable. We provide all needed equipment for most events.

Upbeat and family friendly–light-hearted and just plain fun–you can always count on A Sudden Tradition!
