About the Bands:

Betse and Clarke- “Folk; Traditional Folk; Future Folk; Old Time; New Time;
Deeply Rooted in Southern Mountain Music and the Roots Before Those Roots;
Original Compositions, Songs, Sounds…”

Urban Pioneers- “Mix one part Texas fiddle and one part Tennessee banjo, add doghouse bass and a splash of guitar and you have a delicious cocktail for your ears known as the Urban Pioneers. This string band hammers out a variety of original songs that encompass old time hillbilly music, western swing, rockabilly, and even a few gypsy type songs for good measure. The band stays on the road all over the world for over 250 days a year playing anywhere from large festivals to backyard parties to goat farms.”

“Hillbilly Swing Music is true to the title, filled with fun ditties and infectious reels that reawaken the simple joy of primitive American string music in a way that is invigorating and fun, yet still enriching with intelligent turns and deceptively-smart songwriting. Their fourth overall record…really is a step up in quality across the board from the trio, from the songwriting, to the production, to simply the audio grade of the recordings. It’s probably worthy of naming as their best record yet. A former classically trained violinist and an enlisted man in the Navy take time from trapping feral hogs on their property in North Texas to play a few songs for you to help spin the troubles away. This is what old time primitive country is all about.”-SavingCountryMusic.com
