From our CD now more than ever

The Bitter Liberals is a band of focused concentration and joyful collaboration, encompassing decades of musical experience. The Bitter Liberals plays all original music of texture and maturity, featuring rich story-telling, fine vocals, and the seasoned musicianship of Allen Kitselman, Clark Hansbarger, Gary McGraw, and Michael Rohrer.

During COVID, the Bitter Liberals took an extended break from recording and performing. We are only now (in 2023) beginning our journey back. Come see Bitter Liberal Clark Hansbarger play an intimate songwriters show in Front Royal THURSDAY 1.19.23.
