TWANG. TORCH. TONK. The Radials have a flair for melody and a knack for great stories. Put those elements together with a cacophony of upstate California jangle, swampy cajun spice and downtown Nashville honky-tonk, and you have a unique blend of Americana roots music with a modern twist. The Byrds, Loretta, Replacements, Beatles, Neil, Willie and Cash cast a shadow on the instruments of the Radials, but it is the unique blend of these five musicians that lift the crowd to their feet to move to the music.

Ol’ Timey String Band:


Not quite bluegrass, not quite mountain music, but just a great toe-tappin’ fusion of acoustic fun, steeped in a celebration of Appalachia. Having a picnic, pig-pickin’, fall festival, or outdoor party? These guys can make your event more fun with the Americana sound of great traditional string band music.

Hammered Dulcimer:


LKirwan
A trained percussionist, Larry took up the hammered dulcimer 20 years ago, and loves playing everything from folk to Baroque. He has played weddings, vineyards and performance venues across the state.  A large part of Larry's music is from the Irish repertoire, but he can play your favorite American tunes and wedding songs as well.  He can provide a calming, tranquil atmosphere for your reception room, church, or wine tasting room; or he can pick up the pace and play reels, jigs and hornpipes for your party or performance venue.
