Joe's Truck Stop

This concert has been canceled due to weather.  Joe's Truck Stop: where the coffee's hot and the showers are free. You can usually find the band ripping apart old-time fiddle tunes, saying grace to their country heroes, and dishing out original songs to the dancing feet in the crowd. Their unique sound is characterized by bluegrass vocal harmonies and twin fiddle lines, driving Appalachian dance tunes, and lonely honky-tonk songs.
