  • Colorado's Finnders & Youngberg proudly swim in the deep currents of American music,€” classic bluegrass, tried-and-true honky-tonk, country swing and skillfully spun folk tales. While their sound evokes timelessness, it is a decidedly contemporary, well-traveled 21st century sensibility that informs their songwriting. Their tunes come out of the bumps, bruises and laugh lines earned when we find ourselves in the bogs of back roads, dive bars and long, lonesome nights.

    The band'€™s 2015 album, "Eat the Moon,"€ is described by Hearth Music as "€œa self-assured vision of American music, rooted in tradition, but pointing to new creative directions that make it vital and relevant in today'€™s modern world." Eat The Moon is currently a Top 10 album on the Folk DJ Charts, with title track "She Wants to Eat the Moon" climbing through the Top 20 singles.

    Finnders & Youngberg is Mike Finders (vocals/guitar), Aaron Youngberg (pedal steel/banjo), Erin Youngberg (bass/vocals), Rich Zimmerman (mandolin), and Ryan Drickey (fiddle). The group was a showcase artist at the 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association and at the 2015 Folk Alliance International Conference.
