Lively fiddle tunes, lonesome folksongs, and fancy footwork unite as this versatile quartet from upstate New York combines elements from the old-time, bluegrass and swing music of the Appalachian, Blue Ridge, and Smokey Mountains, to the French-Canadian and Celtic influences of the early immigrants to the Adirondack and Green Mountains. Toe tapping music on twin fiddles, banjos, mandolins, and guitars, along with percussive Appalachian clog dancing, combines with 4-part vocal harmonies to showcase the diversity of rural American music.
For the past 16 years we have been entertaining in coffeehouses and concert halls, teaching and calling dances, and educating as artists-in-residence in schools throughout the US and Europe. We have loved our interactions with students, artists, and audiences and look forward to more musical adventures in 2013!!
