ABOUT THE SHOW

The show is 80% original composition with a few known and not so well known traditional or cover songs added to each set. Instrumentation consists of acoustic guitars, bass, a small snare/kick drum set up, piano, accordion and harmonica. You can expect plenty of three part harmony and a generous helping of old jokes and story telling.
