Mighty Crows is a Bay Area bluegrass band with a traditional style and repertoire reminiscent of the seminal bluegrass acts of the ‘40s and ’50s. The band is built around the powerful trio singing of Chris Smith (guitar), Jeff Zieba (banjo), and Mark Wardenburg (fiddle).
The Crows have been performing to rave reviews at venues and festivals from Etna to Sanger including the San Francisco Old Time and Bluegrass Festivals, Wolf Mountain, Kings River, Plymouth, and Good Old Fashioned. They’ve played cozy bars like the Riptide and on concert stages such as the Redwood Bluegrass Associates and the Freight and Salvage. They have appeared on radio shows such as Ray Edlund’s Pig in a Pen (KPFA Berkeley), Peter Thompson’s Bluegrass Signal (KALW, San Francisco) and Mike Russell’s Monday Night Bluegrass (KKUP, Cupertino) and were featured on Stranger Music, a weekly, alternative-music series airing on KMVT Television (Mountain View).
