"Great music and great musicianship. Agile fiddling, hard-driving three finger banjo,
a rock-solid rhythm section..." 

Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine

 

"Every once in a while a new band emerges that catches my attention.
Not only their great name, but most of all their music which has the power and the glory of the old stuff, the stuff I love to listen to..."

Who We Are

AJ Srubas (fiddle), Aaron Tacke (banjo, vocals), and Rina Rossi (guitar, vocals) are old-time and early bluegrass music devotees who love to spread their excitement about this music wherever they go. As often as possible, they are joined by the multi-talented Nokosee Fields on bass. They like playing tunes and songs for you, and enjoy teaching and leading workshops, too.
