About the Band
Bonfire Dub plays a deep and powerful blend of roots music - original songs with rich melodies, featuring down tempo, acoustic laced and electric steel driven reggae, folk and dub. Bonfire’s lyrical repertoire is inspired from eastern philosophy, indigenous struggles, political injustice, international relief efforts and a deep respect for the soul of love and the balance of nature. Bonfire’s founder, Scotty Stoughton, interweaves stories of hope and struggle, derived from his humanitarian aid experiences in regions such as Central America and Haiti.
Since its 2009 emergence, the band has welcomed Bridget Law of renowned folk music group Elephant Revival, and she currently appears for most shows. The collaboration is natural - coalescing the divine feminine and the sweet sound of the violin into the Bonfire groove. Law is also a part of the ensembles' newly released EP, “Who We Are,” showcasing the band’s trance-style beats and expressive lyrics.
Bonfire Dub is directly affiliated with Bonfire Entertainment, Stoughton’s brainchild that has created and produced a number of notable music events, including Campout for the Cause and WinterWonderGrass - festivals that have focused on the power of community, art, physical expression and environmental awareness.
Stoughton says the music of Bonfire Dub is hard to put a finger on, but easy to get lost in, inspiring listening hearts to dance for hope and move with positive expression.
