Blazing a Trail in 2013

Russ Baum and Huck Finn have been on this journey since June of 2011. Both coming from different paths, they formed this high-energy act, which they have dubbed "Folk Energy & Mayhem", and have not looked back since. With over 475 shows under their belt, as the hardest working Duo on earth, these two guys have not slowed down. Blazing a trail around the central Midwest, they have went from a local bar act to a regional act with in months. With clever craftsmanship and extreme songwriting abilities these two have over 200 original songs in their arsenal and several thousand cover-songs for shows that require "covers". An exciting and fun moving act, they leave audiences everywhere dancing, smiling, and singing along to their music. The sound that they come at with is amazing! For two guys with an acoustic guitar and a djembe, these guys "put it out there" using no effects; they just hit you with clean sound and crisp vocals. Both guys are very seasoned performers and entertainers that completely love and enjoy playing music. Their shows are captivating and very moving. Their style and demeanor is very real, and it shows in the original music they give you. Of the stories they tell you of love, life, and living through the music; this is one of those acts that is unlike most that come around. To see, to hear, to feel Russ Baum & Huck Finn, is to experience them and understand just how special these two are.
