Local string band The Midnight Plowboys performed onstage as part of Shindig on the Green over Labor Day weekend. Today, the group launches its video from that appearance, featuring the songs “Sawin’ on the Strings” and “Goin’ to Italy.”
The Midnight Plowboys got their start in 1980, recording and performing frequently until 1990. Recently re-established, the current lineup includes Brian Hunter on guitar, Laura Boosinger on banjo, Emma McDowell Best on fiddle, Mike Hunter on mandolin and Robert Reeves on bass. All five musicians share vocal duties. Learn more abut the band on Facebook.
