Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestras worth of rhythm.  Music City Roots, Nashville

Sausage Grinder, Los Angeles classic old-time and country blues string band, combines the traditional sounds of fiddle and banjo breakdowns with the low-down sound of country blues, topped off with a touch of ragtime and hillbilly jazz. The versatile acoustic ensemble features fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, jug, washboard, and a few odds and ends.

Echo Mountain is an old-time string band based out of Los Angeles.Together they play square dances and farmers markets in the LA area and have been featured performers at the Watkins Family Hour. The collective vision of Echo Mountain is to build a repertoire that reflects the whole spectrum of the old-time tradition, playing each fiddle tune and mountain ballad with new energy while remaining true to traditional style and form.
