BUS IN TROUBLE!
The trusty band bus, Snowflake, is in need of urgent repairs! In order to keep on the road and make all of our summer tours, we need $6000 in brake and suspension work. That's a hefty price for a working band, so we're reaching out to our community for help! Any donation truly helps, and no amount is too small. If you are able, please visit our GoFundMe to help keep the Hounds on the road!
We greatly appreciate your support - thank you for helping keep the music alive!

Lineup Changes
After an action packed march, we are saddened to say farewell to our intrepid banjo man, Devo. Though he assures us he won't be too far away! Stepping in to fill the gap are old friend Dexter Simpson on Irish tenor banjo and Ben Garrison on mandolin (when he's not wandering barefoot into the woods!)
Say hello to the new Hounds!
