Rusty Borealis • ”Fell Down Pretty”

a rowdy hoedown of a band who is equally at home playing on a street corner, in a bar, at an all-ages venue, or around a campfire. We are banjo pluckers  and love playing on the porch because of the comfortable rocking chairs, fresh air, and the good internet reception.
