MO FREE STOMPIN’ the first Thursday of the Month – and The Kay Brothers will be featuring Jake Allen on percussion and Jeannine on fiddle!

“It’s in your blood.”
After many-a yarn spun at Thanksgiving dinner over the years, two brothers finally decide to form a band together and salute the music traditional to their home: The Ozarks. With no real notion of what that “was”, a banjo and upright bass were procured and the two dove into the rabbit hole of traditional Old-Time Appalachian music and, much like the music’s pioneers, made it work with the minimal knowledge and equipment they had. Joined by Molly Healey, Roger Netherton and Jeannine on fiddles as well as “Shakin’ Jake” Allen on percussion, the group boasts 4-part vocals, upright bass, guitar, banjo, washboard, congas, shakers, fiddle, harmonica, kazoo, cello, and an array of foot percussion. The mission: to preserve the rural music of our forefathers and mothers that used to fill the wooden barns that once dotted countryside on Saturday night and the small family churches on Sunday morning. That party is still going on…. it’s in your blood.

Genre: Bonifide Hootin’ n’ Hollerin’ Hillbillyin’ Ozark Stompgrass and What Not Armed with Upright Bass, Guitar, Harmonicas, bass drum, washboard, and sibling harmonies, they make a lot of noise… if you ride on the jangle-stomp time machine, be careful not to crack a heel.
