The Unfaitful Servants 

“One of the most exciting bands from Vancouver Island in some time…gorgeous harmonies and fine song writing, beautiful instrumental interplay and some seriously rippin’ solos.”
Kelly Nakatsuka, CBC Radio, Islands Folk Festival

Victoria’s The Unfaithful Servants offer a cross-genre blend of bluegrass, newgrass, folk, alt-country and more for an eclectic mix of progressive music with a distinct West Coast Canadian vibe.

“We run the gamut from classical, bluegrass, rock and roll and traditional fiddle music, and usually try to incorporate all those ideas together to form a cohesive sound,” says mandolinist Jesse Cobb. As a founding member of the critically acclaimed bluegrass group The Infamous String Dusters, Cobb received a Grammy nomination for one of his original compositions, Magic #9 and has recorded and performed with Bela Fleck, Lee Anne Womack, Dierks Bentley, John Cowan, Jim Lauderdale and others.

Led by singer/songwriter Dylan Stone, a self-described “restless songwriter” who constantly pursues new sounds, the band also features Quin Etheridge-Pedden on fiddle, who was nominated in 2017 as Young Artist of the Year for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and Louis Rudner on bass.

“We represent a tradition of music that stems from the US but we are uniquely Canadian,” says Stone. “We bring something different to the table.”
