The Old Main bio


The Old Main is an indie-folk group based in New York’s Adirondack region.  

With over a decade worth of co-writing experience, Seth Becker and Nashua Robb bring to life a full spectrum of tunes with topics ranging from lost love to optimism in the face of life’s all too familiar trials.  

The duo draws inspiration from influences such as John Prine, Wilco, Neil Young, and has been compared to The Avett Brothers, Jamestown Revival, and Tom Petty.

With catchy original music and creatively reimagined covers, they've been called everything from Folk-Rock to alt-Americana, though no label or description compares to hearing their roller coaster ride of foot stomping to atmospheric ballads  in person. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjo, pedal steel, upright bass, drums, and ringing vocal harmonies make up The Old Main’s raw authentic sound, and their high-energy live performances are enjoyed by all. The Old Main continues to build acclaim and expand their already strong following all over the North East.
