Hardscrabble has made a name for themselves in the Eagle Valley with their unique blend of traditional bluegrass and colorful renditions of crowd favorites. They deliver a lively show aimed at audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
We’ve been influenced by music from a variety of different genres, and that’s evident in our repertoire. We try to have fun up there and keep the audience engaged. You’ll hear us play traditional bluegrass anthems by Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, mixed with ‘newgrass’ favorites by The Steeldrivers, Hot Rize, Tony Rice, John Hartford and even Steve Earl and Marshall Tucker.
Formed in 2008, this five-piece group consists of Jena Skinner on lead vocals and harmonica; Robbie Brown on lead guitar and vocals, Eric Lovgren on banjo and vocals, Scott Loss on bass, fiddle and vocals, Steve DeGroat on mandolin and vocals. Hardscrabble has a rich and lively sound showcasing every instrument and the rafter-shaking voice of singer Jena Skinner.
