#39;s top string instrument players. From bluegrass classics to Irish-folksy vibes. Uproot Hootenanny has that certain string band charm that has all ages leaving the show with a smile. Along with their own originals, they do some pretty awesome covers that range from the Rolling Stones to Johnny Cash. With David Welch on banjo, Brian Bolen on guitar, Brian Trew on fiddle, and Nico Kiriazis on upright bass, Uproot Hootenanny is just a downright good time.
