What do whales, swamps, peach trucks, lighthouses, river rapids, sleigh rides, highways and trick shots have in common? They all share a home on our brand new album Wherever I Wander!

We would love to have you join us in Nashville, TN, Tuesday, March 10, 2015, at Carter Vintage Guitars at 6:30 pm for the first of two shows that will premier brand new music from Wherever I Wander.  It will be a fun filled night of music hosted by Grammy-Award winning Adam Steffey. Adam is a dear friend and we are so honored that he will MC this special night. This event is open to the public and is free. All ages are welcome.

The second show will take place Friday, March 13, 2015,  at 8:30 pm in Asheville, NC, at the Isis Restaurant and Music Hall. The Isis is close to home for our record label, Mountain Home Music Company and has been host to many album release events. We can’t wait to gather with all the great folks at Mountain Home Music and share this brand new album with you! Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. All ages are welcome.

Join us at either or both album release events to hear new music from the Snyder Family Band.

Snyder Family Band and Zeb are Final Nominees for IBMA Momentum Awards

Last year, the International Bluegrass Music Association inaugurated the IBMA Momentum Awards. These awards are meant to recognize musicians and industry professionals in the early stages of their bluegrass careers. It is not a peoples’ choice, popularity or member-voted award, but a juried award by notable peers. Essentially, the Momentum Awards recognize the best “up and comers.”

IBMA has announced the nominees for the 2014 Momentum Awards. We are excited to find ourselves in two categories:

  • Performance, Band – Snyder Family Band
  • Performance, Intrumentalist – Zeb Snyder

Winners will be announced at the IBMA World of Bluegrass in September.

Zeb Lands in Second Round Voting for IBMA Award

We are excited to announce that Zeb has been voted onto the second round ballot for IBMA 2014 Guitar Player of the Year! We would like to ask IBMA voting members to consider Zeb when you are filling out your ballot. There will be a third round of voting before winners are announced at the annual awards show at IBMA World of Bluegrass to be held in Raleigh, NC, September 2014. Zeb is honored to be included in the voting.

Adam Steffey’s New Primitive

Award winning, Adam Steffey, invited Zeb and Samantha to record on his upcoming solo project titled “New Primitive.” The CD features Adam’s outstanding mandolin playing, along with his wife, Tina Steffey, on clawhammer banjo, Eddie Bond, on old time fiddle and vocals, Barry Bales on base, Zeb on guitar and Samantha contributed bluegrass fiddle on two tunes as well as a vocal track. Adam put together an incredible mix of tunes combining old time music and bluegrass. Release date is expected for June 2013.

Zeb featured in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

Zeb is featured in the March/April 2012 issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. The article is the “CD Highlight” and covers Zeb’s musical career from the beginning right up to our new CD “Stages.”

In addition, Zeb’s original instrumental “Goose Down Pillow” from “Stages” is included on the companion CD and is transcribed in music and tab. Thanks to Dan Miller for having Zeb in FGM!
