Over the years, they’ve played numerous gigs and have found themselves adding pop, alternative tunes from the past four decades, and any folk songs that sound half-decent with excessive banjo riffs to their repertoire. A highly entertaining band you do not want to miss! Children 3 and under must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.
