  1. Nice relaxing sound. Love the violins….fiddles?


  2. You had me at Neil Young – they’re really good!


  3. I liked this. Wonder where their name came from.


    • Good question.

      Where did you come up with your name?

      Our mandolin player thought of it while we were trying to think of a name that didn’t sound like a bluegrass band. We kept coming up with terrible things. He threw that one out there as kind of a joke. We really needed a name because we already had a couple of shows booked, and we just said, “Fine. We don’t hate it.”


  4. Another one for my List of Music David Made Me Get.
