Page Title

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 guests 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.


"I’ve been a fan of the Waddington Brothers since the first time I heard them. They are a true musical treat drawing from their influences in bluegrass, gospel and Western music creating a sound that is all their own. Skillfully executed instrumentation and tight family harmonies are just two of the things that you’ll get when you listen to the Waddington Brothers. Check them out when they come to your neck of the woods, you won’t regret it."

"The Waddington Brothers are a bluegrass outfit. Four brothers. Job’s the youngest and plays upright bass and harmonica. Ethan and Jacob are twins. They play banjo and mandolin respectively. And Seth, eldest of the Waddington Brothers, plays acoustic guitar. And they all sing together, creating the richest, most spot on harmonies the ear has ever heard. When you hear them you might be reminded of the Sons of the Pioneers. They possess a level of intuition and thoughtfulness that just is a rare gift from God. They are, after all, brothers, a true band of brothers."


~Tom Brosseau,

Host of The Great American Folk Show

"The Waddington Brothers Band played for our Black Hills Bluegrass Festival in June 2021.  The audience loved their music, they played a nice variety of music from traditional bluegrass to the Sons of the Pioneers.  They have wonderful harmonies and strong instrumentals.  Besides that they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.  We were very happy with the group and look forward to having them back at our festival very soon."


~Carol McConnell, President

Black Hills Bluegrass Association

"They are really great, we played a show with them last year, good guys, hard workers, bright future."
