Coming to Mountaingrass 2024!

'Fiddle We Must' grew out of a pandemic bubble, when Ashley Turner and John, Yerxa deprived of their regular Govjams, (at 'The Gov' in Adelaide), continued to meet up to explore banjo/fiddle duets. Over time, Geoff Bridgland started joining the  bi-weekly sessions, and last year Stephen joined up, bringing guitar, bass and vocals.
Fiddler Ashley Turner is one of the most in-demand side musicians in South Australia, performing and recording with Western Swing, Old-time, Jazz, Rock, and Folk performers.
Geoffrey Bridgland has been a stalwart of South Australia’s (indeed, Australia’s) Bluegrass scene for 50 years, playing banjo and fiddle with the long-running band Bluegrass Junction.
Stephen Loss got his first guitar at age 13, and soon discovered Bluegrass. He plays bass with Bluegrass Junction.
John Yerxa grew up musically in the old-time revival scene on the US West Coast in the 70’s, playing guitar, banjo and bass in a variety of Old-time performing and square dance bands.
