Piney Woods Boys
The Piney Woods Boys are Jim Collier, Matt Haney, and Wayne Martin. They play southern stringband music from the time before labels like "old-time" and "bluegrass" came to designate different playing styles.

Margaret Martin & LaNelle Davis are also performing tonight, as Ol' Weevil. The Piney Woods Boys will play the first set, Ol' Weevil will follow for about 30 minutes, and they'll be all in for a final mini-set performing together.
