Finnders and Youngberg
Date and Time
Friday, November 8th, 2013 at 8:00pm
Mike Finders (vocals/guitar), Aaron Youngberg (pedal steel/banjo), Erin Youngberg (bass/vocals), Rich Zimmerman (mandolin), and Ryan Drickey (fiddle) are Finnders & Youngberg, a truly rootsy musical soup, seasoned and thickened for your enjoyment. They have each had success in their own right, but when they joined forces, an American West front-range melting pot of music was born.
“This group will have appeal to people that enjoy a mix of styles tossed into their bluegrass salad. FY5 is casting a wide net with this release, and it’s got plenty of good picking and singing to go with the gritty songs Finnders and his gang have assembled here.” David Thom, Bluegrass Today
“The straight-forwardness with which Finnders & Youngberg deliver bluegrass on the album is complimented delicately with large sprinkles of honkey-tonk steel and glorious folk harmonies; all layered with a coating of thick, rich lyrical delivery and songwriting.” -Charlie Englar, Scene Magazine
“Their performance breathes like an intimate porch jam, yet the tight arrangements, lilting harmonies, careful choreography around a central microphone, and instrumental precision display the group’s commitment to their music.” - Henri Deschamps, Acousticana Journal
