As the original member of the Santa Fe Line, Joel Scarbrough is the bands utility man. Having performed with the likes of Bill Monroe and other bluegrass music icons, Joel has spent the majority of his career in traditional bluegrass music. After relocating to the state of Texas in 1988, he was persistent in the pursuit of other band members who shared his idea of this type of music. After trying out several different configurations of this Newgrass/Americana/Progressive Roots sound, in 2010 he became the original co-founder of this band known as The Santa Fe Line. He primarily plays 5 string banjo and mandolin. He also plays some dobro as featured on the new album “The Cowtown Sessions.”
