BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand

Creating New from Tradition

BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand is a national touring band who’s roots originate in the Appalachian Mountains of southern West Virginia. The band features four multi-instrumental musicians that have spent over a decade traveling, writing and performing together. During that time they have created a rare and deep bond that can be observed in their music. During performance they listen and react to subtle nuances in each other’s playing, this invokes spontaneous ripples of creativity making their sound unique and distinguishable from performance to performance.  


BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand performs original music and the occasional classic from one of their influences. The songs and melodies are influenced by the band members and their varied musical background including Bluegrass, Gypsy, Folk, Old-Time, Celtic and even Classical. One of the strengths of this band is the devotion and level of support they receive from each other to grow, reach for new sounds, and approach music as a lifestyle.

Brief History

BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand is an original string band with roots from the mountains of southern West Virginia. The bond between these musical brothers is something to behold. Although this band is originally from the mainland, they spent a significant amount of time on the island of Maui sharing their music in the mountains here in the Pacific Ocean over the past decade. From sidewalks to theaters their music loses no authenticity. This band hand crafts songs and tailors their music with ferocious passion and sincerity. As they traveled the mainland coast to coast and flew over oceans to Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii their experiences led to many relationships and a deep founded love for their friends, fans, and family.
