The Quietmen originated in Scranton, PA. We are a family band and have been playing together for many years. The core of the band is the duet of Jamie and Paddy (because we don't have real jobs.) The rest of the band joins in whenever possible. No matter what the configuration of group members, we always have a good time.
The Quietmen include but are not limited to:
Jamie Ratchford- Guitar, vocals, harmonica, Kazoo
Paddy Ratchford- Keyboard, vocals, bodhrain
Danny Ratchford- Guitar, vocals
Molly "Quietgirl" Malone- Tin Whistle, fiddle
Paul Hurst- Drums (monkey percussionist)
Marty Nazar- Guest vocals, guitar
Teddy Bryan- Guest vocals, black belt skills
