The Dirt Farmers are a foot-stomping grassroots string band that fits any party like an old shoe. They are known for their fun-loving mix of old-school country, bluegrass, blues and rock, with the occasional slip into hip hop and other genres.
The band members are a unique as their song list from stand-out young guitarist, Kelly Hagerman, to 76-year-old Bill Devine on dobro and pedal steel, they’re pure Montana in the “country cosmopolitan” sense of the word. With Nate Fortier on mandolin, Hans Swenson on fiddle, Chuck Swenson on banjo, and Suzanne Ford on stand-up bass, the Dirt Farmers know how to get down to business and have fun. Dirt Farmers, Nate, Kelly, and Chuck also write original tunes that invite you to the flavor and fun of Montana life.
The Dirt Farmers are located in Bozeman, MT, near Yellowstone Park, Big Sky, Livingston, and many other Montana locals. They also travel to play in other areas in Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and other western states.
A great band for a multi-age wedding crowd or other event with something to everyone from grandma to the kids out on the dance floor.

We couldn't have been happier with our decision to use the Dirt Farmers at our wedding. They were incredibly fun and easy to work with. They provided a string trio for our ceremony and rocked our reception. The music was fantastic and we danced the night away to classic rock, bluegrass, original music, and even some modern hits! Shawna (the band manager and bassist) was probably the nicest person we worked with out of all the wedding vendors we used. Genuinely sweet and helpful. They even offered to come early and pitch in with any last minute set up. Who does that??? If you want a fun, low stress, all around amazing band for your event or wedding, definitely book the Dirt Farmers. My mom event traveled to see their show in Eugene, OR after the wedding. Fans for life!Sent on 11/15/2016

The Dirtfarmers did an amazing job for our wedding. They were so friendly and accommodating! They drove all the way to Broadus and then out to our ranch wedding. They also played even later than expected, giving all our friends a chance to dance! My little brother is a guitarist and they backed him up on a song he wrote, without any heads up. We had so much fun and were really, really happy with them!!Sent on 05/31/2016

The Dirt Farmers are amazing. With an eclectic mix of hard-driving bluegrass, sprinkled with rock alterations.Sent on 08/10/2015
Kelly, lead vocals and guitar, is stellar - and Hans is quickly becoming a fiddle prodigy.
We have received non-stop comments of "your band was phenomenal" and "who was your amazing band."
Everyone was great to work with, and they even learned a first dance song for our wedding.
Highly recommend for your next wedding or event.
