Clinton's Ditch / Bio

Clinton’s Ditch is a six-piece Progressive Americana act from Rochester, NY. The bands’ name pays homage to the Erie Canal, which passed through their home town and helped to spur the growth of the Mid-West. Clinton’s Ditch is driven by two singer-songwriters backed by four good friends. Joe Burge plays the electric guitar and sings his original compositions. Sean O’Connor plays the 5-string banjo and sings his original songs. Together with Chris Platania (Acoustic Guitar/Vocals), Ben Pero (Bass), and Max Snajder (Percussion/Harmonica/Vocals), and Ben Collins (Drums), the band turns out a deep, churning sound that may be best described as Outlaw-Western Roots-Rock. The thoughtful lyrics and interwoven rhythmic layers produced by the band have captivated audiences from all walks of life. Clinton’s Ditch continues to add to their long list of original material as they push the boundaries of Americana music and open up new musical frontiers. Fans agree that once you see these boys play, you can’t help but to “Dig the Ditch”!
