Hillfolk Noir

From Idaho come a band who make the oldest American string band traditions sound fresh and new and relevant. “The jugband tradition is alive and more than well – they bring a punky, spunky spirit to the blues and old-time” (The Herald). Universally saluted for their amazingly rich country-tinged, swampy-swingin’, hillbilly-delta-blues-ragtime music. Sounds strange? Don’t believe it. This is music that cuts through, and makes everyone who hears it feel a special connection with a powerful tradition.
