Herb & Hanson


Herb & Hanson, a high energy acoustic duo from Virginia, have been traveling all throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond to share their unique blend of indie bluegrass for more than six years. Calling on their many influences and musical heroes, they have created a vast catalog of impressive original material to go along with unique interpretations of old time songs and fiddle tunes. You have to look no further than their most recent recording, The Whiskey Fund, to witness the fine development of their songwriting and musicianship. Performing mainly on the East coast, the duo constantly travels through Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Maryland performing in bars, restaurants, and finer music venues. Any time these "cultural icons on the rise" perform, it is a must see event!
