 They played several originals including a really cool gospel tinged song called “Rolling that Rock,” as well as covers of Neil Young, Van Morrison and Tom Russell.

They sounded like a more rootsy Gordon Lightfoot, featured stand-up bass and superb three part vocal harmonies.


 They began their second set with an excellent version of bluegrass standard “Fox on the Run.“ which had another handful of people enjoying themselves.
