Ian and Dustin Meadows have been playing music together for quite some time now. It all goes back to singing along to their parents’ records, sitting at the kitchen table in their high chairs. Somewhere in their early teens, while playing in another band together, they got ahold of some Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie albums. The Meadows Brothers are the end result of two kids from New England becoming infatuated with the roots of American music, the art of crafting song, and being able to pass on the joy they receive from the music to an audience.

Dustin, who started out as a drummer, made the switch to rhythm guitar as well as harmonica, which quickly became an integral part of the brother’s performances. Ian primarily sticks to guitar, handling the lead parts if the song calls for it. They share vocal duties, and sing those classic sibling harmonies inspired by the “Brother Bands” of 1940’s and 50’s country and bluegrass music.

They are currently in the studio recording their sophomore release. Dustin graduated high school (finally) in June 2014, and the brothers are now looking forward to making the road their home.
