The Smoky Hollow String Band is droppin' in from Tallahassee. Inspired by the mountains, hollers and flat-lands of bygone days, three veteran musicians bring you hard drivin', no holds barred traditional music for a special evening of air conditioned dancing.
Gainesville’s own inscrutable Jonathan King will amaze and entertain you with energetic dance patterns that will leave you breathless and hollering for more.
The Smoky Hollow String Band is:
• Lindsey Smith on fiddle;
• Roger Eudy on guitar; and
• John Flynn on banjo.
Their music inspired by "the mountains of North Carolina, the hollers of Missouri and the flat-lands of Florida" – all the places they once called home.
