Emerging as a band in 2021, Broken Compass Bluegrass has rapidly been recognized for their tight arrangements, tasteful picking, and distinguished songwriting. Based in northern California, BCB includes Kyle Ledson, Django Ruckrich, Mei Lin Heirendt, & Sam Jacobs. Though still in their youth, they are no strangers to the music industry. All four musicians are seasoned performers, multi- instrumentalists, singers, & songwriters and they have quickly established themselves as one of California’s most prominent up-and-coming string bands. As their noteriety bubble expands exponentially, they are easily catagorized as the new breed in the jamband scene.

In just two short years, Broken Compass Bluegrass has already found their way to the stage of many iconic music festivals including the High Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry, Winter WonderGrass, Hang Town, the Northwest String Summit, Sugar Pine & Hog Farm Hideaway among many others. Come see them pick live and experience the magic in real life.

Hot off the press is their debut album, FOOL'S GOLD, released March 31, 2023 now available on both compact disc and 140g Vinyl!
