OldHat Stringband is based out of Eliot, Maine. Fusing tight vocal harmonies with a lively acoustic rhythm section, OldHat creates a sound that draws from bluegrass, old time, folk, and country traditions. The band is comprised of Whitney Roy (Guitar, Vocals), Steve Roy (Mandolin, Fiddle, Vocals), Amanda Kowalski (Bass), and Carolyn Kendrick (Fiddle, Vocals)
Whitney Roy’s lilting vocals provide the backbone of OldHat’s vocal blend, while her solid rhythm guitar anchors the bands rhythm section.
Steve Roy is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and has performed and toured internationally with many of the acoustic world’s top acts.
Amanda Kowalski, in addition to being a superb photographer/film maker, is rock-solid bass player, and her rhythmic drive and energy on stage are second to none.
Carolyn Kendrick is a phenomenal fiddle player and singer, and an amazing solo artist/producer as well.
