Crooked Stovepipe

Crooked StovepipeCrooked Stovepipe is a bluegrass band located in St. John's, the oldest city in North America. The band has been playing bluegrass and traditional music around Newfoundland since 1973.They've also been featured at the Nova Scotia Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival, Canadaís first and longest-running bluegrass festival, and at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival in Stony Plain, Alberta.

The members of Crooked Stovepipe are Neil Rosenberg on banjo, Ted Rowe on guitar, Rex Yetman on mandolin, Pat Moran on fiddle and Dave Rowe on bass.

Crooked Stovepipe has released the following albums:


Neil Rosenberg grew up in the western United States and cut his teeth on bluegrass in Indiana in the 1960s, where he helped manage Bill Monroeís Brown County Jamboree and played in the house band. He even got to play a few times with Bill Monroe--enough to put his name on Blue Grass Boys belt buckle #120. Neil moved to St. Johnís in 1968. In 1985 he produced Bluegrass: A History, the definitive book on the roots and development of bluegrass.

Ted Rowe grew up singing and playing Newfoundland and country music in Heartís Content, Newfoundland, discovering bluegrass in the early Ď70s. Heís been singing lead with the band ever since.

Rex Yetman hails from Jamestown, Newfoundland. He was one of the founding members of the York County Boys, Canadaís first bluegrass band, who played around Ontario and eastern Canada through the 1960ís and early Ď70s. Rex moved back to Jamestown in 1993 and it wasnít long before he ended up playing mandolin and singing some great old gospel songs with us.

Dave Rowe, the bass player, is Tedís son and no stranger to musical performance or to bluegrass. Dave also plays guitar, mandolin and banjo and lends his high tenor to the bands vocals.

Patrick Moran, the newest member, has been playing fiddle since the age of five and has worked with many of the leading traditional bands in Newfoundland. Heís the busiest fiddler in St. Johnís but still finds time to add his tasty licks and traditional tunes to our shows.
