Our Story

We formed our group in 2010, we love to play music together and enjoy playing many different genres of music, as well as some original tunes of our own. We play at various functions around the Peace River Country; local festivals, fundraisers, music nights, open mic, and churches.  In 2012 we played at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival in Stony Plain, Alberta.  Backroad Stringband are the hosts of the "For the Love of Music" festival held every year the long week-end in July at Kakut Lake.
