Mr. Baber's Neighbors "The Solar String Band"
The Solar String Band was established in the living room of Mr. Baber's Neighbor with the intentions of nothing more than a good time. With the release of their self-titled album, Mr. Baber's Neighbors offers their own interpretation of the bluegrass experience.
From the flatlands of the Midwest comes a band of urban hillbillies who joined the bluegrass revolution and set out to bring the high mountain sounds to those seeking a respite from the daily grind. The Solar String Band was established in the living room of Mr. Baber's Neighbor with the intentions of nothing more than a good time. With the release of their self-titled album, Mr. Baber's Neighbors: The Solar String Band offers their own interpretation of the bluegrass experience.
From the traditional, high lonesome sounds of days gone by, jugband music, rags and reels, to the modern jamgrass arena, MBN:TSSB takes the listener on a musical journey which connects them to the roots of the genre while opening rhythmic doors to the future. Armed with Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin, Dobro and a Bass Fiddle, Mr. Baber's Neighbors adds organic, heartfelt harmonies to complete their wholesome sound.
If given the chance, don't miss out on a true knee slappin', down home hootenanny and your special opportunity to become a member of the Baberhood!!!
