Florida folk, country and bluegrass to forties swing and rhythm &
blues, all on acoustic instruments! Featuring award-winning banjoist
and fiddler Tammy Murray, the band hails from Gainesville, Florida,
and performs at concerts, festivals, schools, clubs and parties throughout
the state. They’ve even been known to call a square dance or two.

at the Appleton Museum in Ocala, the Cummer Museum in Jacksonville
and the Sunday Sampler in Dunnellon, they have also been broadcast
live on national public television and radio. They are a favorite
at the Florida Folk Festival, where they have graced the Mainstage
for over ten years.
