Sawmill Ridge is a Central Ohio based traditional bluegrass band comprised of a diverse group of veteran musicians.  The band was formed out of our common faith, a sense of God's purpose in our lives, our love of the music, and a desire to make friendships that last a lifetime. 
Thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome our new member to the Mill 

Hi everyone,

Sawmill Ridge would like to introduce you to the newest lead Guitar and lead vocal member....Dan Phelps.


We sure are happy to have him on the team, his Tony Rice Style playing is a huge addition to the Sawmill and his vocals come straight from that high lonesome traditional sound that can't be taught. His family is steep in the Traditional Bluegrass scene, grandpa played Dobro for Bill Monroe, and Jimmy Martin., his father and brother are well known in the bluegrass community. Make sure to give him a big Sawmill welcome!

Rogers Bluegrass Festival 

Sorry everyone for the short notice but we had to cancel this show due to some personal issues, we would like to Thank Mark and the crew for understanding and hope to get up in this area next year!
