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) www.facebook.com/youngergangmusic

STEVIE TOMBSTONE


After a chance meeting with Roy Acuff as a young man,

Stevie Tombstone was certain he would always be a musician.

Born in rural Georgia, Stevie learned the ropes playing

country, gospel, and blues. Rebelling against his roots,

he immersed himself in the world of rock and the underground music scene

of the '80s in Atlanta but never lost the twang of his childhook.  

Almost three decades later, he has become an accomplished performer and songwriter.

Stevie has released five solo albums and several music videos, produced music with his 1980s swamp rockabilly band,

The Tombstones, and made appearances on compilations all over the damn place.

KERN RICHARDS


With his Tom Waits-like gravel voice and Johnny Cash style, Kern Richards

speaks to the Country Western traditional audience as well as to the rocker in us all.

His songs of heartbreak, loneliness and dissolution are sung by a master storyteller

with a unique sense of humor, irony and warmth.
