Eli Gilbert is a native of North Yarmouth, Maine. After seeing J.D. Crowe and the New South at a local Bluegrass festival Eli decided to pick up the banjo and eventually moved to Johnson City, Tennessee to study Bluegrass at ETSU. There he had the chance to perform as a member of Jeff Brown and Still Lonesome and the ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band. Most importantly, he met and befriended the musicians who would eventually become Dreamcatcher.
Eli also has a weekly banjo video series that can be found at www.eligilbert.com!
