The New Acoustic Collective

The New Acoustic Collective features many of the top up-and-coming jazz, bluegrass, and classical musicians in the Bay Area, combining a variety of strings to bring a modern and unique sound to the New Acoustic Music canon. The collective includes band leader and composer Jason Keiser (guitar), Rodrigo Ruiz (arco/pizz. double bass), David Boyden (fiddle), and Nathaniel Grohmann (cello).

Wyatt Rice of the Tony Rice Unit mentions, “I couldn’t be more proud of how Jason and Company are carrying on the torch of New Acoustic, Dawg, and SpaceGrass music.”

“As one of the progenitors of ’New Acoustic Music’ back in the 1970s I must say that I am overwhelmed by the evolution of the form and its continued excellence. This band ’The New Acoustic Collective’ is one of the most innovative to appear so far. These guys totally cook and their composing and arranging skills are awesome.” - Richard Greene

David Grisman Quintet member Darol Anger says, “These young West Coast musicians are carrying the torch high for Acoustic String Music, and I expect great things from them.”

And fellow David Grisman Quintet member Mike Marshall adds, “These young cats are burning up some New Acoustic Music! Thanks guys.”

This special ensemble works to bring all styles of music to bear, blending bluegrass/traditional music idioms, jazz, flamenco, classical, and beyond
