The University of Vermont is not generally known to attract strange folks. However, at the onset of the 1990s, a duo practicing the finer arts of the acoustics was formed out of vocalists/guitarists Reid Genaur a Jon Trafton, who later teamed up with bassist Erik Glockler and drummer Luke Smith to complete the "strange" lineup. Initially playing within the local college and club circuit, Strangefolk moved on to regional tours and then started throwing their weight behind national undertakings.
Their self-titled debut offering came out in 1994 to which the band referred to as their "Demo" and then released Lore the following year under Autonomous/Croakin' Poet. Their next record Weightless In Water was released by Flat Earth Records. Featuring the lyrical skills of three of the four Strangefolk members, the album caused a lukewarm stir, with a handful of catchy hooks interspersing the otherwise steadily moving sound wagon. 1998 saw them get signed on to Mammoth Records, yet suffered a "mammoth setback" when Disney acquired the record company the following year. However, the band kept on keeping on and released what would have initially been their debut record A Great Long While independently after having it produced by Nile Records. The band officially acknowledged this as their third studio album, and is characteristic of the influences of other indie and folk rock bands such as Dave Mathews and Spin Doctors. However, the album let slip through their meticulously crafted compositions in what is otherwise perceptible as a deceptively simple musical arrangement.
Strangefolk released Open Road at the onset of the new millennium in the aftermath of the departure of Reid Genauer. The record makes it apparent that the band had to rethink their sound and relied on their longtime collaborator and producer Dan Archer as well as incoming members, namely guitarist Luke Montgomery and keyboardist Scott Shdeed to create the breezy and outdoorsy feel that would encapsulate the vision of the album. Tracks such as "Leave a Message" and "Rubber Band" as well as the title track aptly strike a balance between edgy electric guitar riffs and soothing acoustic strumming. The rest of the 2000s saw Strangefolk literally go all out on the "open road" and taking a hiatus from studio sessions altogether, resulting in the release of two back-to-back volumes of their live music titled as Coast to Coast.
Strangefolk has truly carved their niche as being specialists in live music performances. In 2000, Strangefolk pioneered the Garden of Eden music festival that besides featuring the band's sound for seven years running, showcased various nascent folk acts and attracted thousands of free-spirited music listeners from all over. 2002 saw Strangefolk embark on an exhaustive touring endeavor that entailed 120 shows across 32 states, rounding up the year with providing support to Gregg Allman & Friends. 2005 served as the band's trial by fire as frontman and founding member Jon Trafton was diagnosed as having cancer. Whilst he was undergoing treatment, the rest of the band members sent Strangefolk packing on a vacation and performed with guitarist Steve Jones from Bone Heads in a side project, calling themselves The Windfalls, with the following year seeing the debut of another similar entity dubbed as The Tells, focusing on mainly covering Led Zeppelin numbers. 2012, amongst heralding the end of the current Mayan Age, not the end of the world as we know it, will also see the original Strangefolk lineup including Reid Genaur perform for the first time since 2000.
