These guys have some of the most dynamic vocals and harmonies I've heard in a long time. –Randall Beek, Crazy Wisdom Tearoom, Ann Arbor MI

What shines through Mutual Kumquat is the quality of love -- unconditional, embracing love.  It's underneath all their lyrics, it flows between them on stage, and it radiates outward to embrace their audience and their world.  Mutual Kumquat is soul medicine for the individual, the community, and the earth.  Listen! -Shawn Kirchner, Composer, Singer, Pianist, LaVerne, CA

.unique combination of poetic depth and exciting musicality.These fellows prove beyond a shadow of anybody's doubt that you don't have to turn off your brain to have a party. —Bill Jolliff, Poet, Singer-Songwriter, English Professor George Fox University, Newburg, OR

Seth Hendricks, Chris Good, Drue Gray, Ben Long and Jacob Jolliff make up Mutual Kumquat, a talented group of 3 singer-songwriters, a percussionist, and a mandolin virtuoso. Performing as a trio, 4-piece or full quintet, Mutual Kumquat has brought it's 'good times revolution music' to audiences across the United States, engaging audiences with positive, clever, and poignant lyrics, strong rhythms, rich harmonies, stick-in-your-head melodies and its unique blend of acoustic roots music influenced by bluegrass, funk, jazz, soul, folk, reggae and afrobeat.

Inspired by visions of radical, loving, creative communities living in MUTUAL relationship and the sweet yet tart, tiny but power-packed-with-flavor wonder fruit that is a KUMQUAT, the group was born. A wild journey has followed taking the group from 3 members up to 14, back again to 3, then to 7 and now settling on its current lineup. For full bio, tour dates, and much more visit
