More info about the Folk Varmits:  

Categories and labels are boundaries and limits – forget all that.  We have a bass player who plucks a cello, a pianist who sings her blues and southern lullabies, a banjo player who works the old claw hammer style, and a powerful lead female vocalist who sometimes strums the yuke, sometimes pipes the harmonica.  We play what makes our hearts sing, be ’em old country covers, modern rock and folk, original material and whatever else we dig.  In the words of Willie Nelson, “The life I love is making music with my friends”  so lets make some music.
