Bluestone derives its name from the blues in bluegrass music and the stone in the former Keystone band name. Bluestone formed two decades ago when Dick Laird (mandolin) and Carroll Swam (guitar & vocals), members of the southern York county band Keystone, joined forces with Dick's two sons, Heath (bass) and Jeff Laird (guitar), and veterans, banjoist Tom Neal and violinist Jon Glik, known as “Baltimore Jonny”. Recently joined by veteran Dobro player Russ Hooper, this hard-driving veteran bluegrass band brings together musicians who have played with some of the best including Del McCoury, Jimmy Martin, Cliff Waldron and Bill Harrell. Firmly grounded in traditional bluegrass, Bluestone's music incorporates gospel, country, blues, swing, and folk influences.
