You won’t encounter a better delivery of the American old-time string band style than comes from this upbeat trio who first took New York by storm…and still have their base and an impressive following there.

The UK got its first introduction to the percussive and multi-instrumentalist genius of Brian Geltner when he toured here with The Wiyos, and we were introduced to the claw hammer banjo flair and voice of talented sidekick Hilary Hawke when Dubl Handi released their great album, Up like the Clouds, to widespread acclaim. Completing the line up on guitar and vocals is stylish finger-picker Jonathan LaDeau
