Since its formation in 2013, Beg, Steal or Borrow has appeared at numerous prominent festivals and venues throughout the northeastern United States and features an ever-growing repertoire of solid original music. Known for its warm harmonies, virtuosic instrumentals, and tight musical interplay, Beg, Steal or Borrow has won Bluegrass festival band competitions at Podunk, Grey Fox, and Thomas Point Beach, hence being dubbed a “Triple Crown Bluegrass Band” by Bluegrass Today magazine. The quintet continues to perform on the heels of its celebrated debut album of original music, “Old Mountain Time.” The group includes violin, mandolin, guitar, banjo, and bass guitar.
The band is comprised of seasoned musicians from northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Mandolinist Geoff Goodhue released an album with J.D. Hutchison and Tim O’Brien on Howdy Skies records and is a member of The Brian Bowers Band. Fiddler Roland Clark was a member of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra with whom he toured Europe and performed at Carnegie Hall. Roland channels Vassar Clements’ fiddling style so fully that you might close your eyes and believe Vassar is in the house. Banjo player Luke Auriemmo and Bassist Fran Forim are founders of Vermont’s widely known outlaw bluegrass quartet, The Mud City Ramblers, who have haunted Lamoille County for nearly 20 years. Guitarist and singer Jeremy Sicely comes from a long line of musicians and fronts The Hillside Rounders with his father and uncle and received The Times Argus 2016 male vocalist of the year for their “Lighting In A Bottle” album.
