While they take their cues from bluegrass and other Americana influences, the melodies that dominate this self-titled effort vary substantially rather than being bound to any one style specifically. – Relix magazine
In addition to The Way Down Wanderers, the lineup for the 2019 Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival includes Hank, Pattie & The Current, Chatham Rabbits, River Ratz, Hooverville, Cane Mill Road and more.
