Tanner Bingaman plays original and traditional mountain music via guitar, banjo, & harmonica. Tanner's tunes are an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink gumbo, with explorations ranging from poignant punk melodies to rapturous and uncanny instrumental meditations, oftentimes finding himself perplexed by the task of coming down from yet another improvisational meandering. Tanner prefers barefoot walking and once saved the family dog from a rattlesnake.
Tanner has been happily featured on NPR stations throughout Pennsylvania, and he has shared stages with some of his favorite songwriters including Charlie Parr, Darrin Hacquard, Anna Jordan, Sam Bailey, Vincent Yarnell, and Allan Combs II. In 2021, Tanner was awarded Emerging Artist of the Year by the Susquehanna Folk Music Society, and in the following year, his full band was awarded Bluegrass Band of the Year by the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame. In 2023, Tanner played his first international feature with his New Zealand family of musicians, raising funds for flood-relief efforts on the North Island. He is currently playing shows all over the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. Tanner is an active member of the bands Tanjo & Crow as well as fronting his own Tanner Bingaman's Pretty Big Garden.
