Band Bio


The Common Ground Company has been playing progressive bluegrass and Americana since since moving to Minneapolis in 2016.


Over the years, they have spent their time touring the midwest, finishing their debut album, and cultivating their sound. In their recent compositions, the group focuses on expanding their musical versatility. Though they are rooted in traditional bluegrass and folk, the group often steps outside of tradgrass conventions. Led by Steph Snow’s powerful vocals and Jorgen Wadkins guitar, the duo invites friends and companions to blend their acoustic instruments to create a driving, dynamic, and warm soundscape.

Their first release, For Good This Time, occurred in 2017. They released their first full length album The Storm on May 10, 2019. The band has performed shows with Old Salt Union, The Big Wu, and The Kitchen Dwellers. They played 60 shows around the Midwest in 2018 and surpassed that number in 2019. What will 2020 bring?
