More About Me

Bruce Stockwell has been playing banjo since 1967 and teaching since the mid 70’s. By age 16, he and singer/guitarist brother Barry had won banjo contests, recorded their first album, and opened for Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, John Hartford and many others. In the late 70’s, they worked with Phil Rosenthal and Mike Auldridge as Old Dog, with two albums on Flying Fish. Third brother Al signed on and the Bros. spent the 80’s and 90’s folk/rocking around the country, Bruce doubling on Stratocaster. Refocusing on banjo, he won the Merlefest Banjo Contest in 2005 and joined the BCN faculty. He now plays contemporary bluegrass in the Stockwell Brothers, with wife Kelly on bass, and teaches at their home in Putney, VT.
