Kyle Murphy, Sara Murphy, “Frosty” Foster, Max Etling
The Bogglemuffins were formed during a wonderful music filled week at Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp 2006. After much laughter and music making, The Bogglemuffins were born: a four piece band of best friends who meet once a year to rehearse and perform bluegrass standards. Kyle Murphy’s Monroe style mandolin and vocal harmonies are very strong. His sister Sara plays lead fiddle. As the years go by, some original members have moved on to professional careers. This year Kyle and Sara are joined by “Frosty” Foster, advanced guitar, and Max Etling, bass. The Bogglemuffins will team up to teach strategies of ensemble playing, conduct a Bluegrass Band Lab as well as classes in their individual instruments. The Bogglemuffins are all experienced multi-instrumentalists and band members pursuing professional careers in music performance, and have much insight to offer about interacting musically with a band, including what and when to play depending on the song, style, and instrument that you are playing.
