Round Mountain
Opener: Stone Soup “Hoot”

Brothers Char and Robby Rothschild are excellent songwriters and instrumentalists whose lives are clearly devoted to original Roots Music for the 21st Century. Sometimes raucous (imagine trumpet and accordion played simultaneously by one person), sometimes subtle (the harp-like sound of the West African kora), Round Mountain touches their audiences with great songs, emotional honesty, and an engaging live show.
