THE NEW ASH GROVE PLAYERS perform authentic American roots music - folk, country, blues and bluegrass that will uplift your spirit and stir your soul.

Taking inspiration from the many historic roots musicians that passed through the doors of the famed Ash Grove Music Club on Melrose Avenue in 1950s and 60s Los Angeles, these six talented and seasoned singers and musicians play a variety of instruments and take great traditional songs and give them new life.

Featured are SS Jones (vocals, banjo and guitar), Claudia Lennear (vocals and background vocals), Steve Moos (vocals, mandolin and guitar), Eric Ahlberg (vocals and bass), David Fertig (harmonica), Jeff Landau (guitar) and Stewart Niemi (dobro). The band is an ongoing project of the Ash Grove Music Foundation.

The New Ash Grove Players performed to rave reviews at the Pete Seeger Memorial Concert produced by The Ash Grove Music Foundation in 2014. They recently performed their Lead Belly Tribute show featuring SS Jones at the opening event for the Lead Belly exhibition at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA.
