You Should Check out Bramblewood tonight! These guys have a really fantastic sound and are somewhat new, although none of them are rookies... in my experience, when you take well seasoned musicians and put them in a new arrangement, great creativity happens!

Group member bios below:

Carol Hausner grew up singing and playing guitar alongside her father and has brought her music to festivals, venues and community gatherings in Vermont, New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.  She won the first place award in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest (2009) in the Bluegrass category with Colin McCaffrey, and has been called “a dynamic vocalist...noted for her heartfelt vocal style and imaginative songwriting” by Bluegrass Unlimited.

Danny Coane lives in Montpelier and is well known as a member of The Starline Rhythm Boys, the rockin' pride of Vermont.   He has fronted bluegrass, country and blues bands, but the rockabilly, rock 'n roll act "The Throbulators" gained him national exposure. He’s also performed with the WDEV Radio Rangers.  He writes and sings with relentless enthusiasm, and picks a 5-string banjo and guitar with equal ability.

Colin McCaffrey is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer who lives in East Montpelier, VT.  He can be found producing award winning recordings with his own band The Stone Cold Roosters, and renowned Vermont artists like Patti Casey, Myra Flynn, Justin Levinson, Lewis Franco, Susannah Blachly and many more. Lending his smooth voice and string wizardry to the best music coming out of these hills, Colin McCaffrey is what the Burlington Free Press calls "A Green Mountain treasure worth unearthing."
