    Old Time Herald

    Posted By on January 31, 2012

    We can all die in peace now that we have finally been reviewed in the Old Time Herald, aka the Bible. Click on it to read it!

    This also means that the next person to walk up to us and ask us to play irish folk music, any mainstream country song, swedish folk music or “that song from the movie” will get kicked in the eye. We don’t do that. We play old time string band music. Because we are an old time string band. We have earned that title.
