Bering Strait Bio

Bering Strait was a country music band made up of musicians from Russia, that mixed country music with traditional Russian song making. Their style was sometimes called "redgrass" (a reference to bluegrass). The band achieved prominence in 2003, being nominated for a Grammy Award and featured in a segment on the prestigious American news program 60 Minutes, but never caught on with major sales. The group disbanded in 2006.

Bering Strait is actually the band's third name. The original name of the band was Cheerful Diligence. In 1996 they first recorded in the US under the name Siberian Heatwave and were guests on TNN's Prime Time Country. The band dissolved in late May 2006, but the official announcement was not made until June 1, 2006.
