are a burgeoning upbeat, high-energy, blue-to-paisley-grass band, located in Bozeman, MT.  From dive bars to festivals to being your perfect wedding band – we love it all.

The Dirt Farmers are a foot-stomping string band, who call their musical style “paisley grass.” They have gained a following for their fun-loving mix of old school country, bluegrass, blues and rock, with the occasional slip into hip-hop. The band members, as unique as their song list, serve it all up with a smile on mandolin, banjo, guitar, fiddle and bass with vocal harmonies.

Stand-out guitarist/singer Kelly Hagerman fronts the band with Nate Fortier or Ryan Totman on mandolin, Bill Devine on dobro/pedal steel, Chuck Swenson on banjo, Hans Swenson or Silas Rea on fiddle, and Suzanne Ford on doghouse bass.

Dirt Farmers, Nate and Kelly, write original tunes that invite you to be “Having a Good Time” and experience the flavor and fun of Montana life.

Their debut CD, Dirt on the Tracks was released March 17, 2015.

Always entertaining, our shows have an all-age appeal.  Book us for your bar, company party, or wedding – you will not be disappointed!
