Scratchgravel Rounders started locally in the Helena valley with a lone banjo player on his porch. From there, it grew from a small group of friends playing the Mandolin, banjo, and bass to the large project it is today! Our members come from all walks of life, from tour train operators, artists, and gunsmiths. We play traditional and contemporary bluegrass, folk, and Irish music. When asked if we’re truegrass or new grass, we choose both! Our project has become a great addition to the Helena community and we hope to continue it for many years to come.
Opening support from Leslie Jane.
Leslie Jane is a Montana born singer songwriter. She’s been based in North Dakota for the past 10 years, but has recently relocated back to Helena and is excited to become part of the local music scene.
Her largely acoustic set features a healthy mix of upbeat radio hits, favorite throwbacks, and folksy originals all put together with a looper and vocal harmony effects.
A music therapist by trade, Leslie has a love for changing up her set list based on the crowd and the room, so don’t be afraid to throw out a request or two!
