Welcome to our website.

The Bearwood Bandits are six piece collective formed in the autumn of 2015. Our aim is to play all things acoustic on a variety of traditional instruments: Folk, Bluegrass, Newgrass, Country, Americana, Blues – you name it, anything goes.

Our instruments include banjo, mandolin, fiddle, various guitars, accordion, dobro, octave mandola, washboard, harmonica, autoharp, melodica, tin whistles and kazoo, matched by female and male vocals.

A review from Brewood Acoustic Music Club (June 15th, 2017):-

“SUPERB! Such a talented group of performers with so many instruments, and stunning vocals! All helped to make this an evening to remember.”
