THE YOUNGER GANG


www.facebook.com/youngergangmusic

“This Rochester-based folk outfit brings together members of

the Windsor Folk Family, Roots Collider, Blackened Blues, and Sparx and Yarms.

  The resulting amalgamation is a deeply affecting foray into what you could call neo-Americana. 

The band’s unique approach to old-timey Appalachian tunes is positively informed by,

and infused with, the members’ rock, blues, funk, and electronica pedigrees. 

It’s a distinct breed of folk music that is, despite a healthy respect for its roots, absolutely modern.” – David Yockel (City Newspaper)
