Hello!

Thank you so much for visiting. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we just might be your new favorite string band!

Under the Rocks performs as 4 piece bluegrass ensemble.

 

Under the Rocks are:

Chris Baxter - Banjo/Mandolin & Vocals

Jordan Klassen - Guitar & Vocals

Chloe Davidson - Fiddle & Vocals

With Nils Loewen - Bass

Hailing from Kelowna, Canada, Under the Rocks has emerged from a city with no other bluegrass acts to become one of Canada’s premier bluegrass bands. Featuring acoustic guitar (Jordan Klassen), fiddle (Chloe Davidson), banjo and mandolin (Chris Baxter), and upright bass (Nils Loewen) the band makes a big sound that tips its cap to tradition while incorporating singer-songwriter music intentionally put together with clever, inventive song arrangements, emotive instrumental breaks and powerful vocal harmony. Their shows commonly feature dancing, laughter, joyful hoots and hollers and serene moments accompanied by tears and tranquil sighs of release or appreciation. They are a heartfelt, talented string quartet that blends uplifting energy with a reflective reverence for the difficulties of reality that marries joy and sorrow and declares “YES”. Yes to all that it means to be alive on this planet, here and now.
