The Gather Rounders features both talented bluegrass veterans and exciting fresh faces.

Lincoln Meyers (guitar, vocals) an award-winning guitarist who has been playing professionally for 30 years, 18 of them in New England, has toured for years with national bands Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen and The April Verch Band.

Ron Cody (banjo) is a genre-defying banjoist with recordings that have been featured on All Things Considered, The Thistle and the Shamrock and Sirius Radio Bluegrass. Renowned banjoist Tony Trischka adds about his playing- “Ron can hit from all sides.” Visit him online at roncody.com.

Zach Ovington (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) has been a singer and multi-instrumentalist on the New England folk, bluegrass and jazz scene for over 10 years. His music is based in southern folk music learned during childhood with Irish and traditional jazz influences from time spent in the north.

Wendy Cody (upright bass) has performed throughout the northeast as part of the venerable New England Bluegrass Band and has recorded with musical luminaries such as Darol Anger, Rushad Eggleston and Mike Block.

Together, The Gather Rounders make a unique brand of modern bluegrass and folk music, rooted in tradition yet infused with inventive verve.

“The Gather Rounders came rolling into Providence like thunder last Wednesday at Nick-a- Nee’s. Great vocals, tight harmonies, solid Bluegrass rhythm, and scorching breaks conspired to keep the crowd there until the very end … And no one wanted the show to end!”
Sal Sauco,
The Bluegrass Throedown,
Providence, RI
“We were thrilled with the performance of your powerhouse quartet at our 12th annual Punkinfiddle Festival. Thanks for gathering ’round the mic on the porch of the Maine Coastal Ecology Center!”
Scott Richardson, editor,
Wells Reserve at Laudholm
“After hearing The Gather Rounders down in the Old Port, we really wanted them to play for our daughter’s country-themed wedding. We couldn’t have picked a better band for the occasion. Compliments galore from our guests and a good time was had by all.”
Bill and Diane Patten,
Appleton, Maine
