Atlanta-based duo Bow N' Banjo consists of Erica Ransbottom (cello/mandolin) and Jody Hughes (banjo/guitar). Though the primary instrumentation is the unique combination of banjo and cello, Erica and Jody explore the versatility of different instrumental combinations that might be unfamiliar to listeners.
Bow N' Banjo performs for weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, cocktail hours, receptions, background music in a restaurant setting, and live concert events with our own original songs. We play many different styles of music ranging from classical to Appalachian/bluegrass to modern pop favorites. Combined with our versatile range of unique instrumentation styles, you'll be sure to have a one-of-a-kind duo at your next event.
"We hired Jody Hughes and Erica, the cellist featured on many of Jody's videos and demos, for a private dinner party at Cheekwood Museum and Botanical Gardens in Nashville. They were beyond phenomenal and incredible to work with. The group was comprised of seasoned travelers and many who have met or attended intimate performances from some of the best known artists of our time—and they could not get enough of this duo! From the soulful and artistic banjo/cello duets to up-on-your-feet bluegrass tunes so skillfully and beautifully played, we were all captivated and have not stopped talking about them!"
