We play traditional American Old Time music from the rugged Appalachian mountain region. This music is a cultural fusion of ancient folk ballads that arrived with English, Scottish, Irish and other Northern European settlers, and the powerful influence of the hypnotic rhythms of the local African-American musicians. There in isolated communities among the ridges and hollers it evolved into hot, driving dance music. The music of hard-living, close-knit folks straight from the porches, parlours, frolics and square dances of the remote rural South.
