WeÛªre a Bluegrass band based in New England. We perform traditional and original tunes and mix in some tasty covers. We’ve been playing together since 2005. We’ve been described as a hard driving, harmony singing acoustical foursome. We cover a lot of musical territory. Four Bridges is comprised of the following gentlemen.
By day, Jeremy is in college. At night, heÛªs an avid songwriter and bread baker. He picks and writes after he gets his two young boys tucked in bed and a couple of loaves in the oven. He makes his home in Middleboro, Ma. Jeremy plays guitar and mandolin, sings and creates a lot of our songs.
Benjamin grew up in Rhode Island and his dad Rusty was a pit man & mechanic on the stock car racing circuit. He brought little Ben with him up and down the east coast. Rusty also moonlighted plowing snow and often took Ben, a pot of coffee and a Flatt & Scruggs cassette every time he left to work those long winter nights. The rest is history. Ben admires and respects the bluegrass icons & that sound is very much a part of Ben’s musical chemistry. Look for Ben’s Dad, Rusty, manning our record table. Ben and Rusty are Rhode Islanders. Ben sings, plays banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, violin….pretty much anything he picks up.
Greg Ferreira-mandolin, guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals.
Greg is a classically-trained pianist who loves music. As a young boy, Greg passionately practiced Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 in between playing baseball and other boyhood pastimes like catching frogs and shooting bows and arrows. In his teens, Bill Monroe & the Stanley’s caught his ear and he got to work playing that high lonesome sound. Hailing from Aquidneck Island, he is the tallest member of Four Bridges and is often the one hooting and hollering and getting everyone pumped up.
Russ is a carpenter, fisherman, and survivor of Woodstock. He’s been laying down the beat for Massachusetts bluegrass bands for twenty years and counting. Russ is a family man living in Kingston, Ma. Russ plays stand up bass and guitar.
