The Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association is thrilled to welcome one of its newest member bands to their HVBA debut this March: The Ruta Beggars! This young Boston-based band infuses traditional bluegrass and early swing to create a timeless act filled with intricate vocal harmonies, fiery instrumentals, and plenty of fun. They have been praised for their creative yet tasteful arrangements and charming performances, starting with a win at the band competition at Maine’s Thomas Point Bluegrass Festival in 2019. The Ruta Beggars have been featured on the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Showcase, Steve Martin’s Unreal Bluegrass, Brian O’Donovan’s A Celtic Sojourn, the main stages of Joe Val, Grey Fox, Thomas Point, Podunk, and Ossipee Bluegrass Festivals, and as opening band for Lyle Lovett and Steve Miller.

Brought together by their passion for bluegrass, The Ruta Beggars are Micah Nicol (guitar), Sofia Chiarandini (fiddle), Ariel Wyner (mandolin), and Trevin Nelson (banjo), who met while studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in the American Roots Program. Come join us for this can’t-miss show—these young musicians are sure to excite and amaze!
