Hailing from Cumberland Valley, Louisville, Laurel and Owsley counties, this group traffics in roots, bluegrass, old-time and generally acoustic genres, and their self-titled record album teems with a sensibility that belies their age.
With appearances at Terrapin Hill, Mountain Heritage Literacy Festival and the upcoming Bristol (Tenn.) Rhythm & Roots Festival in September, Curtis, Chris, Dave, Scott and Owen keep the approach organic.
