The Bad Oats are a Bluegrass and Americana string band based out of Boston, MA. The band formed in early 2019 and since then has performed at festivals and stages around the Northeast, including The Joe Val Memorial Bluegrass Festival and The Fresh Grass Festival.
The band’s members, Lucy Singleton (Vocals), Sam Powers (Mandolin), Charlie Jack Fuertsch (Guitar), Graham Northrop (Banjo and Lap Steel), and Jeff Halpin Jr. (Bass) meld their musical identities to create a unique style. Although firmly rooted in American roots music, The Bad Oats fuse elements from a wide range of styles incorporating influences as diverse as Crooked Still, Buck Owens, and Billy Joel.
