"Uncommon Ground" is one of the most talented and entertaining bands around. Each musician travels easily through the musical worlds of bluegrass, swing, old-time and even classical music, demonstrating true instrumental  brilliance and diversity. Enjoyable vocals and humorous banter round out their stage shows guaranteeing a great time. See them and be prepared for an uncommonly good experience - they're terrific." … Carol Beaugard - Host of "Lonesome Pine RFD"

"To witness a show with Uncommon Ground that includes the likes of Wayne Fugate, Rachel Handman & Phil Helm is to witness passion, dedication and the truly incredible & delightful sounds that come from the individuals, as well as the mingling of the strings, notes and harmonies as a group. They are totally professional musicians in every sense of the word, but what the audience hears and sees is five adults having a play date! And what could be better than that?!" … Pat Mazo – Owner, Bodles Opera House, Chester, NY

"This group of seasoned and skilled musicians play old-timey & bluegrass music the way it was intended to be played - with energy and contagious fun. Individually, they have been friends of the Towne Crier Café for many years. It’s great that they’ve found each other and a delight to have them perform here. The future is bright for this band!" … Phil Ciganer – Owner, The Towne Crier Café, Pawling, NY

"Wow!!! Be sure you get to an "Uncommon Ground" show for a refreshing alternative bluegrass experience! Cool arrangements, hot licks, smooth vocals, & great jokes - they will entertain and inspire!" …Sara Gallmann - Music at the Mission, West Milford, NJ

“People had said you guys were good – ‘real tight’. I’ll say! We really appreciated your great sense of humor and adventure and the music itself was top shelf – people loved you guys! Thanks for making our event a hit! … Joe Kiernan - Scenic Hudson, Poughkeepsie, NY

Uncommon Ground performed at the Poughkeepsie, NY annual "Bluegrass Between the Bridges" this past September and absolutely wowed the audience! Aside from each band member having an unfair allotment of musical talent, they have a joy and energy that the audience could easily tap into. What a joy to watch them perform and even more to hear them perform!!!!

Working with this band was also a joy. They were eager to support our organization and cooperated without the usual "artistic" temperament. It was a pleasure having them on our stage and we look forward to many more performances by this new and talented group. … Lynn Lipton – Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association
