Colebrook Road

The result of a chance meeting of former high school classmates, Colebrook Road has become a standout string band, a bluegrass powerhouse made up of five individuals whose sum is more than the total of their talents.

From modest beginnings as a four-piece band playing a thirty-minute opening set outside Harrisburg, PA, Colebrook Road now plays as a five-piece ensemble composed of lead singer, guitar player, and lead songwriter Jesse Eisenbise.  Mandolinist, harmony guru, and winner of the 2014 Watermelon Park Bluegrass festival mandolin contest Wade Yankey serves as half the rhythm section, rounded out by upright bassist, tenor vocalist, once-sound-engineer-now-band-member Jeff Campbell.  Banjoist, bass vocalist, dobro player, and winner of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival banjo contest Mark Rast makes four, with fiddler, baritone vocalist, and winner of the 2015 Deer Creek Fiddler’s Convention bluegrass fiddle contest Joe McAnulty rounding out the group.

In addition to award-winning members from an array of backgrounds, a vast majority of Colebrook Road’s performances feature original works played with an energy and intensity often unmatched by modern acoustic bands.  Quickly becoming a familiar name in the mid-Atlantic region, the group’s reach is rapidly expanding to include the upper South and New England, with bluegrass band competition wins at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival (Hebron, CT) and the Watermelon Park Bluegrass Festival (Berryville, VA) aiding the growth.

Following the 2012 release of their eponymous first effort, the group will release their sophomore album, “Halfway Between,” in May of 2016.  Like their first, the album will feature all-original vocal and instrumental songs- ten studio tracks in all, plus a bonus live recording of “Sun Up, Sun Down.”.  Plans also include a 12” LP vinyl release later in 2016.
