Jake Armerding performed around Massachusetts from an early age often with his father Taylor’s popular bluegrass band Northern Lights. Armerding has won both regional and national acclaim for his mix of bluegrass instrumentation with contemporary melodic songwriting.
His album Jake Armerding was released in the spring of 2003 on Compass Records. It combines Armerding’s fine instrumental skill on guitar fiddle and mandolin with an ingenious set of songs that draw from the traditional forms while staying firmly grounded on contemporary ground.
