  • †Lots of great shows coming up this season with The Midnight Plowboys! So glad to be playing with these folks. The Midnight Plowboys, a roots music string band from Asheville, NC, performed and recorded professionally from 1980 until 1990, with a sound featuring harmony vocals supported by banjo, fiddle, guitar, and bass. During these years, the groupís main focuses were bluegrass songs and fiddle tunes, but they also blended in Cajun, honky-tonk, waltzes, Texas swing and early rock and roll. The 2012 reunion created demand for personal appearances, and the Plowboys were reborn with the strong lineup which is featured today: founder, Brian Hunter, guitar and vocals Laura Boosinger, banjo and vocals Emma McDowell Best, fiddle and vocals Mike Hunter, mandolin and vocals Robert Reeves, bass and vocals. When we are lucky, Arvil Freeman joins us and the twin fiddles sing!
