Dry Branch Fire Squad has been a staple in the traditional bluegrass world for over 40 years now, with singer/songwriter/instrumentalist/comedian Ron Thomason leading the way. As the only band to have played at every single Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, it’s clear to see why Dry Branch Fire Squad performs annually at many of the nation’s premier festivals such as Grey Fox, Festival of the Bluegrass, and Hardly Strictly.


Dry Branch Fire Squad provides thoughtful harmony lines that give expression to the soulfulness and meaning of bluegrass and old-time music. With impeccable timing and knowledge of the modern side of country, Ron’s social commentary, catchy lyrics and song choice from the oldest traditions of music makes Dry Branch Fire Squad one of the most entertaining bands in bluegrass.


Ron Thomason’s professional music career started when he was just 13 and he has collaborated with the likes of The Clinch Mountain Boys, Ricky Skaggs and Keith Whitley. He started Dry Branch Fire Squad in 1976 and is known to enjoy music-making more now than ever. In addition to Ron on mandolin is guitarist Brian Aldridge, banjoist Tom Boyd and Jeff Byrd on upright bass.

“‎Ron Thomason is a national treasure.” – Ted Lehmann, No Depression


“It’s a matter of receptiveness, of openness to a tradition…(they) show sensitivity and respect for the people who “made” this music…(The music) is beautiful but there is another side to this band that must be experienced in the flesh: humor…I’ve seen full barrooms grow so quiet I could hear the soda fizz in my glass. And I’ve seen audiences so convulsed with laughter that minutes had to pass before the show could go on.” – Joe Wilson, National Council of Traditional Arts


“Dry Branch Fire Squad makes vibrant, engaging music that is immediate in its impact and timeless in its resonance.” – Express Times Easton, PA
