From south western North Dakota, The Waddington Brothers have been performing together since 2004. They have performed with such notable artists as The Kruger Brothers, Ron Block and Bobby Hicks. The Waddington Brothers spent many years touring the United States and Canada with their family (nine of them in all) as the Waddington Family performing Gospel music. Music has been in these men's blood since early childhood. In 2009 Ethan won second place in the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield Kansas. Since then the brothers have performed at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, they have been featured on "Dakota Air, the Radio Show" on Prairie Public Radio as well as performing for North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple's inaugural ball in 2013. The Waddington Brothers are a versatile acoustic group with a musical style that ranges from hard driving bluegrass to the mellow sound and dynamic western harmonies reminiscent of Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers.
“The Waddington Brothers are, by far, the best band I’ve seen in years. Their repertoire ranges from both original and classic bluegrass, to the songs of the cowboys, and heart felt Gospel. As a forty year performance veteran, I highly recommend the Waddington Brothers for your next corporate, family, church, or festival event.”
