The Essex River Rounders Band, or ERR, is a North Shore Massachusetts based group varying in size from three to five members. We cherish our nearby open areas, marshlands, ocean front, and rivers, and our name grew from that love. Our music is anchored in the folk genre, and as we interpret this widely, includes ballads,folk blues, bluegrass, songs and shanty's from the sea and waterways, certain popular numbers, and a few that are just plain hard to typecast.
