The Storytellers is a prominent progressive bluegrass ensemble on the Southern California Roots music scene.

The bandís extensive repertoire draws from the rich canon of traditional bluegrass, country blues, old time, and folk music as a basis for inspired improvisations and intrepid vocal harmonies.

The Storytellersí strong musical chemistry allows them to bring soulful and joyful harmonies, delicate acoustic sensibilities, soaring grooves, tight rhythms, substantive storytelling, and their own hippie, bluegrassy vibe to every stage they stand on. Considered to be one of the regionís premier acoustic Grateful Dead cover bands, The Storytellers bring soulful and joyful harmonies, soaring grooves, and their own hippie, bluegrassy vibe to every stage they stand on.

They play with the single microphone technique used in bluegrass, feature vocal harmonies like Crosby Stills and Nash, and display the technical proficiency of a band like The Punch Brothers.
