Old Hat is a string band based out of Eliot, Maine. Fusing tight vocal harmonies with a lively string band rhythm section, Old Hat’s sound draws from bluegrass, old time, folk, and country traditions. The band is comprised of Whitney Roy (Guitar, Vocals), Steve Roy (Mandolin, Fiddle, Vocals), and Amanda Kowalski (Bass). Whitney Roy’s lilting vocals provide the backbone of Old Hat’s vocal blend, while her solid rhythm guitar anchors the bands rhythm section. Steve Roy is one of New England’s premier multi-instrumentalists and has performed and toured with many of the acoustic world’s top acts. Amanda Kowalski is one of the more sought-after bass players in the worlds of bluegrass and old-time music, and her rhythmic drive and energy on stage are second to none.

A note on getting here:
You’ll enter the farm from the field just east of the junction of Drinkwater & North Roads in Kensington. Please note: there is another 178 Drinkwater Rd in Hampton Falls – don’t go there! You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see the wind turbine up on the hill.
See you at the farm!
