The True Sounds of a String Band

The McGovern Stringband

Welcome to the McGovern Stringband Website

The McGovern Stringband is an acoustic americana and bluegrass all string band – featuring the vocals of father & son, Kelly McGovern (guitar) and Brian McGovern (mandolin). The McGovern String Band combines a wide variety of genres with a bluegrass style that is anchored by the Nebraska Performing Arts Hall of Fame inductees: bass player and vocalist Dave Morris and Fuzzy Blazek on dobro steel, along with the great Daren Blythe on 5 string banjo.

Their three and four part harmonies, combined with a percussive acoustic instrumentation, bring back that legendary high lonesome sound of Bluegrass.
