Manatawny Creek Ramblers!

May 14th, 2008

Hey Everybody!

Since early spring I’ve been traveling the few miles to the infamous Moonlight Forest Studios outside Oley, PA. to get together with Daniel ‘Scrappy’ Bower (Frog Holler-vocals & guitar), Randy Krater (The Youngers-upright bass & vocals) and my old pal Michael Beaky (Pavlov’s Dawgs-banjo & vocals) to play as The Manatawny Creek Ramblers. The Ramblers are already a popular band in the area but have been branching out a bit lately, mainly with me on mandolin & vocals and appearances by Ted ‘the fiddler’ Fenstermacher. I am proud to be NEW full-time member of this great group of friends playing almost purely traditional bluegrass, and we have two great shows coming up this month with a bunch more through the summer (and many being added daily at this point). We also plan to start recording an album at Moonlight Lodge, where Frog Holler is currently recording their new album. By the way, a great place to record.
