About
We are a string quartet (Fiddle, Base, Banjo, guitar), performing “Authentic Appalachian String Music" with traditional bluegrass.
We have performed several square dances, "interperative" music gigs for the National Park Service. as well as full show "Bluegrass Concerts". We have done several shows for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (State Parks), and of course many private parties, corporate functions, and an occasional tavern.
If you hire us you will experience tunes such as “Turkey in the straw”, “Old Joe Clark”, Soldier's Joy”, banjo tunes such as “Foggy Mountain Breakdown”, and " Dueling Banjos",(banjo channeling Scruggs, Reno, Eddie Adcock, etc.), vocals such as “Rolling in my Sweet Baby's Arms”, and “Rocky Top”, and some waltzes. (We may mix in, as the audience wishes, some classic country). We interact with the audience and try to explain a bit about the music, joke around some, and honor requests, if we are able.
Please check out our reviews (click the "more" button).
Reliable and honest, with clean language, we do not disappoint, and have always received compliments. !! 5 star rated !!.....see our ratings and customer comments.

The Lonesome Fiddle Ramblers are terrific! Jerry was a pleasure to work with from the beginning in coordinating the event and the group was a perfect fit for our Barbecue and Bluegrass themed corporate event. They are all super talented musicians, friendly, professional and our guests enjoyed listening to their music. I hope to have another event in the area just so we can book them again. Thank you all for helping to make our evening such a success!

Lonesome Fiddle Ramblers are an absolutely wonderful group of performers! They are talented showmen who really made our "Hoedown" gala authentic. They were happy to work with a dance caller and were pros through and through. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for some legitimate bluegrass. What a treat!

Jerry and the Lonesome Fiddle Ramblers and excellent musicians. They arrived on time, and the music was outstanding. During our event, I heard several guests commenting on how much they enjoyed the group's music and song selection. A guest was even inspired to sing with the group and they welcomed her right in. From my first email, I could tell that working with Jerry and his band was going to be easy. They are without a doubt seasoned professionals and I was glad to have hired them for our big event.

These guys are fabulous, talented and fun! We have used them several times for entertainment on our moonshine theme train. Everyone loves them. They play a perfect selection of music, very accommodating and the guests are extremely happy with their style of entertainment. We have booked them several times and look forward to having them join us for several events in the future.

The Band was perfect for our event. I had communicated that we were looking for instrumental music as opposed to voice selections. The music was diverse, but every song was enjoyable. The band members are very talented, and it is very evident that they enjoy performing. Jerry Swope was very responsive in communication with me and was so accommodating to our request for an weekday/evening gig - driving to Hershey, PA from Hagerstown, MD. All of the band members were so personable. We would have loved to have them longer, but we had to vacate the room by 8:30 p.m. People from adjacent conferences were drawn to our event, just to hear them play! They're AWESOME!
