Free Range Strange are exactly what they suggest, a marvelously good band exploring the wide possibilities of a stringband with great originals, wild covers, and tons of smiles.

We were genuinely excited when The Ain’t Sisters burst onto our radar a year ago, and since then they have exploded as a fabulous band fronted by Barb Carbon and Arrie Bozeman, who ain’t.

They will be joined by the one and only Rev. Funky D!

Dennis Stadelman has been prominent on the jam scene for two decades, and during that time he has made a huge splash on his own with Sonic Stew and with the redoubtable quartet CopE, who are making music again.

Triple threat Tony Tyler of Come Back Alice and Tony Tyler Trance will also perform; he is a dangerous man on guitar, keyboards, AND vocals!
