Each a capable lead vocalist, Stark and Kribs swap old-timey folk, blues, and classic americana tunes, and dabble at entertaining endless other influences and flights of fancy. “Keanen Stark and Orion Kribs are two of the finest young blues and bluegrass musicians in the capital region, with a throwback sound, charming stage dynamics, and lightning fast licks.” - Caffe Lena
