About the Artist They seamlessly flow through a vast array of material, touching on Chicago blues, old-time fiddle tunes, traditional country and soul. They carry their influences forward into their own original material. With soulful female, tight male harmonies, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, upright bass, and a whole slew of other instruments, the band is known to satisfy the taste of a wide range of listeners.
They sustain themselves on a small cult following at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northern Virginia.
