I'm sure they'll put the schedule up soon. We've had them at our concert series in Richmond, Virginia and not only are they fabulous musicians - they're unquestionably "the real thing". They come from Grayson County, Virginia, and Martha's family has been musical royalty in that area for generations. She's related to a reknown fiddle maker, Albert Hash, and her dad also makes instruments. Jackson, her partner, has learned the craft from Martha's dad. They are as warm and genuine as you can get - you'll love them and their music! Be sure and make it a point to see them. Oh and Martha is sure to demonstrate some old time Appalachian clogging.
