The Crop Dusters are a brand new bluegrass band based in Frederick, MD. We feature some of the area’s top pickers along with dynamic original material.
The Crop Dusters feature some of the top bluegrass musicians in the Washington, DC area: Jason Hannan and Howard Parker of Michelle Hannan & One Blue Night, Patuxent Records recording artist Rob Benzing, Ron Webb, formerly of Circa Blue, and Matthew Geiger of The Hazards.
The band was formed as a joint venture by Jason and Howard, who wanted to get back to their bluegrass roots, and Rob Benzing, one of the DMV’s most prominent young banjo players. Ron Webb and Matthew Geiger round out the band’s dynamic sound.
The Crop Dusters feature a rare combination of high and tight trio harmonies and some of the best instrumental work around. The band plays both high energy covers of traditional and contemporary songs, as well as originals written by the band’s members.
