Order a copy of my new album today! 

Howdy folks! Thanks for stopping by!

Currently, I am playing most of my shows on my mandolin with the Jakob's Ferry Stragglers. I couldn't find a better group of folks to play with. 

Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland, the Jakob’s Ferry Straggler's draws freely from old-time, bluegrass, jamgrass, rockabilly, and swing music to create their own brand of high energy Appalachian Bluegrass. Our goal is simple: write good songs, honor the music, have fun, and take it to the road.

However, don't let that mandolin fool you. Fiddlin' Ray Bruckman is in my name and fiddling is still my game! I offer studio work on a regular basis and I am fiddling in my own solo projects whenever time allows.

I'm also a passionate teacher. I offer fiddle, violin, mandolin, guitar and banjo lessons in my home in Greensboro, PA, at Atkins Music Center in Connellsville, PA, and the internet worldwide!

Please visit my lesson, show and contact pages for more details!
