The Forefathers are an instrumental ensemble based in Orlando, Florida, performing original Acoustic World Music Fusion. Formed in 2005, the band blends various genres such as Celtic, New Age, African, Folk, and Rock into an energizing and uplifting sound. In July 2007, The Forefathers were voted "Best Acoustic Act" in the Central Florida area by The Orlando Weekly.

Tracks from the CD Manataka, including "Mountain Rose", "Awake", "Manataka", and "Silhouettes", have appeared on National Public Radio's popular "Echoes" program hosted by John Diliberto in 2007 and 2008. "Mountain Rose" has also been selected for the 2008 CD compilation "Tribute to Stuart Adamson" (late singer/guitarist of Big Country).

The Forefathers have performed many well-received live shows. The band has played the Florida Folk Festival, Taste of the Nation at Dolphin Disney Resort, International New Age Trade Show, Orlando Fringe Festival, the Orlando Science Center, various art festivals, clubs, benefit shows, convention shows, & private parties.

Connections Magazine, in July 2006 said about The Forefathers: "I can't even remember the last time I've listened to a world music CD - probably never. But if all world music is like The Forefathers, then maybe I've been missing out...a pretty diverse sound... well-produced, jacketed, and I've heard no other band like them..."
