All the musicians play an active role in helping Abby arranger her songs, making the band a dynamic, collaborative experience rooted equally in the time-honored sounds of bluegrass, with a modern, 21stcentury sound. The band has been featured at numerous bluegrass festivals, including as emerging artists at the 2015 Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
