The Flatland Travelers are busy. Riding momentum from a 2010 Wakarusa appearance, Flatland shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Music-rich Stillwater, OK serves as their hub on days off (which are becoming fewer and fewer). When joined by keys and a horn section, things can heat up very quickly.
