Meet the Band

Maiden Ground began as the musical partnership of Colette Eckert and Mark Zug, performing around the Central Pennsylvania area as a duo. Now a quartet with the addition of keyboardist Kristin Kest and drummer Mike McAndrews, we play covers of our favorite classic music: U2, The Indigo Girls, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin -- and onward -- to Adele, The Decemberists, Neko Case, and anything new that catches our ear. Our original music owes everything to our love of classic rock, folk, surf, Americana, and all the various Brit invasions.

 Our name signifies virgin territory; damp earth upturned toward the sun and seedful ideas; a place where tiny changes can make a very big difference. Maiden Ground is also a place where anything is possible. Thank you for finding your way to our website. Watch us grow!
