Introduction and they're off.
Along with a blending of voices.
The Brick Road Ramblers
How good their music
Music one could listen to
All day, all night
For the sake of us here,
Please do not stop!
But if you may
Then Thank you Brick Road Ramblers

We've put together an email list to let you know about our upcoming gigs and special events. We'll send it out about once per month. Send us an email if you'd like to be added to the list.

Welcome to the Brick Road Ramblers Web Site!
Named for the turn-of-the-century brick roads of Akron, Ohio’s Highland Square where the group first began playing together, the Brick Road Ramblers began performing for folks of all ages in 1996.
Today, the four-member string band can be heard playing traditional, folk, old-time, popular, and original tunes at festivals, parties, cafes, and, on warm summer nights, a fine porch with great acoustics. Come out and see us when you get the chance… we’re sure you’ll enjoy the mix of strong vocal harmonies and acoustic string band music as much as we do. So have fun, tap your toes, and sing along!
Here are 6 mp3 tracks recorded live at our last performance at Scott's Folkatorium, a benefit for Scott. Enjoy them with our compliments.
