A powerful blend of roots music.
Bonfire Dub plays a deep and powerful blend of roots music — original songs with rich melodies, featuring downtempo, acoustic laced and electric driven reggae, folk and dub. Bonfire’s lyrical repertoire is inspired by eastern philosophy, indigenous struggles, political injustice, international relief efforts and a deep respect for the soul of love and the balance of nature.
Scotty Stoughton is the lead vocalist, lyricist and acoustic guitar player for Bonfire Dub, with Rodney James Coquia on electric guitar, Jeff Armistead on the keyboard, Mark Levy on percussion, and Trevor Noel Gagstetter on bass. Since 2009, Bonfire Dub has also welcomed fiddle player Bridget Law of the renowned folk music group, Elephant Revival, as a part-time player and full-time family member.
Bonfire Dub’s new 2016 album, “Gypsy Roots,” is a celebration of community and collaboration. The new release has been called “a record for our times.”
