Widely beloved by loyal fans nationwide for their high-octane live shows with incisive storytelling and a roots-driven perspective, Boy Named Banjo will treat audiences to songs from their catalog that spans over a decade. Most recently, the band released their uplifting anthem “What Keeps Me Going”, which earned praise from CMT, Holler, Taste of Country, Whiskey Riff and more. The single arrived on the heels of the band’s Grand Ole Opry debut, a momentous milestone that was documented at People.

“As a band, putting on the best show possible every night is something we take a lot of pride in,” says banjo player Barton Davies. “We’re so thrilled to have over 30 opportunities to do that on our Dusk Til Dawn tour this fall. We have some amazing artists joining us that our fans are going to love.”

In a time when the popular choice is to chase the double yellow line down the road to country radio, Boy Named Banjo thrives on its fringes. The Nashville-raised five-piece is a fusion of contemporary country, Americana and folk-rock stacked on a foundation of bluegrass. Their stripped-down, self-released 2012 debut, The Tanglewood Sessions, helped earn the band a spot at Bonnaroo, while their more fleshed-out 2014 follow-up, Long Story Short, led to festival slots everywhere from Hangout Fest to Dierks Bentley’s Seven Peaks. After signing with Mercury Records Nashville in 2020, the following year saw the release of their genre-defying EP Circles, which landed them a performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium alongside dates supporting the likes of Kip Moore, Hank Williams, Jr., Old Crow Medicine Show, and The Cadillac Three. In 2022, Boy Named Banjo made their CMA Fest debut playing at the Ascend Amphitheatre Nighttime Concert as well as a sold-out hometown show at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl.

Formed in their teens, Boy Named Banjo includes Barton Davies (banjo), Ford Garrard (bass/standing bass), Sam McCullough (drums) Willard Logan (mandolin, acoustic/electric guitar) and William Reames (acoustic guitar/harmonica).
