The Shirthouse Bluegrass Band is a Southern California band with a Tennessee sound. Shirthouse is made up of Rich Craig on banjo, Peter Lauterbach on mandolin/guitar/ fiddle, Conley Robinson on guitar/mandolin, Rob Lewallen on guitar/mandolin, & Victor Marshall on bass.  The Shirthouse Band has an emphasis on strong vocal harmonies and frequently strays off the path of the traditional with many of their tune selections. They have reworked songs from several genres – rock, folk, country, Irish and old Western into a bluegrass blend, and frequently sing a cappella. Selections include some original songs as well, and they’re releasing a new CD before long. All members split up the lead vocal duties and contribute to their distinct five part harmonies.
