Open Highway band is proud to welcome Ryan Abercrombie. His rhythm guitar playing, and powerful vocals are unmatched. He is also full of laughs as you will notice during his performances. And is an all-round good 'ol country boy. He has been around bluegrass music for 20+ years and has always admired Dan Tyminski, Lonesome River Band, and Third Tyme Out. He makes his home in the hills of eastern Ohio and enjoys spending quality time with his wife and kids. Ryan is surrounded by a great family tradition of music, hard work, and fundamental values and fits right in with the current members of the band. He started playing music at the age of 9, as he played onstage with a family band. Then as he crossed paths with Steven Moore, they formed a band called Almost Famous at the age of 13. They played many venues and gigs across the tristate area. After about a ten-year stint of working in the oil fields, he came back to the love of music and joined the Open Highway band and now says he's "back to doing what I've always loved." Stop by and see us at a show nearby and say howdy. You'll see that Ryan won't be a stranger, but a good friend.

Howdy folks... Well it's been a while since the band has been able to perform a live show (as with most bands throughout the country things have been pretty scarce) but we have been asked and have been wanting to do a live FB show which is now set for Saturday Jan 30th at 2 p.m.....
Our last official show was Poppy Mountain BGF back in Sept and we've been able to get together a handful of times and jam but are going to do an hour set of live music and we hope you all will tune in and enjoy!! The band members are Austin Wilder/guitar... Tyler Ashcraft/ banjo.. Jim Duty/fiddle..Jim DutyJr/upright bass.
We are not asking for any donations we just want everyone to share this page and hopefully have a wonderful time enjoying the virtual show and of course if there's any promoters out there that like what they hear or see their more welcome to reach out to me through Facebook or email at [email protected]!! We are hoping that 2021 is a successful festival season as all, and we have been honored to accept our first visit to Bean blossom in June of 2021 and also our first visit to the 7 Mile BGF in Ohio and the Basin BGF in Vermont!!!!
We definitely welcome any of your comments and any assistance--- I will further update if anything changes and we hope to see you all live Saturday!!!!
