Stambordet started as an acoustic trio (guitar, bass, banjo) in 2005 by Jarle Obrestad, Trond Gudmestad and Erlend Aasland. After a couple of months, Jarle wanted to incorporate hardingfele and use traditional Norwegian folk music in a bluegrassy setting. As a result, the band soon expanded to a sextet. In 2009 mandolinist Atle Kvia quit, and per May 2009, Stambordet consists of:

Christoffer Aasland: double bass, backing vocals
Dag Bjørkedal: hardingfele
Erlend Aasland: banjo, backing vocals
Jarle Obrestad: acoustic guitar, lead vocals
Trond Gudmestad: resonator guitar

Stambordet mostly plays traditional songs from Bjerkreim (Rogaland) in their own acoustic arrangements, but they also play original compositions by the band members.
