Bio: Steven Earl Howard performs Hillbilly Music for the Soul (bluedrifters@aol.com) on acoustic guitar, 5-string banjo and voice.

"Phil Nusbaum and Steve Howard brought their own inimitable bluegrass based music to the ITOW Veterans Museum on Sunday, July 8th. The program, called “All About Bluegrass” included some great tunes as well as fascinating facts about a style of music that is uniquely American. Banjo player, Phil Nusbaum, is the host of The Bluegrass Review, a one-hour weekly radio program that airs on many public, commercial and internet radio stations. Steve Howard has been performing American roots music on his acoustic guitar for over three decades and is a walking encyclopedia of blues, jazz, folk and bluegrass music. The happy audience at the ITOW Veterans Museum enjoyed both the music and the education. We hope to see them again soon." – Lina Belar, Director, Vets Museum, Perham, MN.
