Rousting acoustic pickin' accompanied by sweet voices make The Rusty Strings a bomber combo in this day and age. Add a heaping helping of camraderie and you get an inimitable blend of kindred spirits generating rootsy ethereality. Their sound rings true. Fatally flawed relationships, comedic truths, road trip fantasies, the arcane and banal, the dark and unknown, are a few of the maxims woven through the songbook of The Rusty Strings. But don't let all these fancy words scare you. As anybody who has been to the show can tell you, they host a great party! Since early 2005 The Rusty Strings have been harkening back to a bygone area of boxcars, whiskey, and workin' with steam power all the while thriving in the freshness of the present moment. Characterized by high lonesome fiddle and banjo on top of time honored harmonic structures, the band's sound makes the elders tap their toes, the younguns get up and dance and everybody else just have a great time.
