Heartaches String Band

The Heartaches Stringband is a labour of love between husband and wife duo Amanda Lynn Stubley and Martin Horak. Joining them is London’s reigning master of the mandolin, James Cummins. Multi-instrumentalist Uncle Dan Henshall rounds out their oldtimey stringband sound with his doghouse bass.

Friends in life, pros on the stage, Heartaches members are active across the country. James Cummins spent several years touring with acclaimed bluegrass band Rhyme N Reason. Uncle Dan heads up the Heartaches’ first-cousin, once-removed, The River Valley Stringband. As well, he tours nationally with various artists, and hosts Uncle Dan’s Oldtime Radio Hour on 94.9 CHRW.

Amanda Lynn Stubley is a folklorist who researched South Carolina stringbands for a graduate degree at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC. She is also a folk music DJ, hosting For The Folk, Wednesday nights on 94.9 CHRW. Most recently, she’s been exploring songwriting, the banjo and solo performing. She published a solo album called “Gem.”

Martin Horak is the “fiddlin’ professor” who keeps a day job working at Western University. As duet partners with young kids, Martin and Amanda Lynn have become masters of the ‘alternative venue,’ and played shows in a broad variety of locations including bakeries and diners, ice cream shops and turkey suppers.
