Since 1984 the Balduck Mountain Ramblers have been dedicated to playing the finest American Stringband musics.

Named after the toboggan hill at Balduck Park one of the few topographic features on the northeast side of Detroit. All are alumni of the closed east side Detroit Catholic school Austin High School, which was located across the street from Balduck Park. This group's repertoire ambles freely from Bluegrass to Western Swing, Folk to Sea Chanties, Pub Tunes, Gospel and A Capella.
