    Rolling Turtle is the rare historian who can also play and sing, and he has witnessed a plentiful slice of that history first-hand. His voice brings a genuine tone to the classic Americana that he loves, and his 108 year old Gibson mandolin rings true to the times that he evokes in song. A real-life treat for both those who remember the "good old days", and for those who never knew them. Benny Gilbert is a popular local blues and Old-Time act from right here in Chehalis, WA. He plays guitar and piano and sings with a voice that comes straight out of ages past. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPUvzLO0il8
