ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drawing on multiple genres (World, Bluegrass, Folk, Country, Americana, Blues, Jazz, Dawg, Celtic, Classical, and Pop/Rock) and focusing on tone and presence by creating incredible virtuoso arrangements for each instrument, The Night Travelers create a sound which presents as if way more than two people were playing. As detailed melodic lines on both instruments weave and dance around each other, audiences often comment that they could swear they hear at least 4 instruments playing and are mesmerized by the sound and carried away.

Combining these special techniques and philosophies with Master level musicianship allows The Night Travelers to lift the simple combination of a banjo, bass, and fiddle above average expectations, radiating an orchestral quality which transcends genres in a distinctive voice all their own.

James McKinney, banjoist, vocalist, and band leader, is one of the most innovative and masterful players in the world today and will continually surprise and amaze you. James, 1982 national banjo champion, has performed, toured, or recorded with all the master bluegrass players and musical legends such as Vassar Clements, John Hartford, Barbara Mandrell, Porter Wagoner, Johnny Cash, and also The Grateful Dead. James was inducted into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame in 2015.

Niki Portmann, the group’s bassist and second vocalist, is an astounding and highly skilled player in her own right, producing soulful and wonderfully tuned bass lines which will hypnotize and have you moving to the music. An electrical engineer and physicist, Niki started her musicianship late in life and combined her love of music with her driving work ethic and rapidly developed exceptional skills with her Bass and composition. Niki was inducted into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.


Together they create a blend of Americana, Folk, and World acoustic music that is truly unique and memorable.


Chosen Artist of the Week by Music Matters Magazine, Jan 22, 2018.


"The Night Travelers", is probably the most unique of all the bands with their eclectic blends of genres, and one you definitely want to hear perform. Calling themselves “progressive bluegrass”, Night Travelers music has been described as a blend of Americana, Folk, and World. Their unique blend includes both original artist compositions as well their own beautifully arranged versions of popular music from the Bluegrass, Blues, Jazz, Dawg, Classical, Celtic, Russian, and Gypsy genres.
