Urban Pioneers @The Jinx
ConnectSavannah Import Default Image

With Texas fiddle, Tennessee banjo, and upright bass, the hard-touring Urban Pioneers are a favorite for old time-inspired roots music.

Jared McGovern, Liz Sloan, and Martin Sargent have been at it for years, living on the road and bringing their sounds around the country. The crew originally met as members of Bob Wayne’s backing band, honing their chemistry while in Jake Orvis’s Broken Band.

The band just released their fourth album, Hillbilly Swing Music, following 2016’s Feast or Famine. The spirited release invites listeners to hit the floor to two-step with a partner while taking in the talented pickin’ and grinnin’ of Urban Pioneers.
