Finnders and Youngberg is a great Colorado-based bluegrass band with an Iowa connection. Guitarist and principal songwriter Mike Finnders hails from our state,  and so does bassist Erin Youngberg.  The band typically does a swing through Iowa each summer, and they stopped by Iowa Public Radio’s studios during their visit to play some music and chat with The Folk Tree host Karen Impola.   They’ve got gigs in Des Moines on July 1, Dubuque on July 2, and Iowa City on July 3, and you can find out more at fy5band.com. Other band members include Aaron (not to be confused with Erin) Youngberg on banjo and pedal steel, Rich Zimmerman on fiddle, and Ryan Drickey on mandolin.  Their performance will air on The Folk Tree on Sunday July 12 and Monday July 13, but in the meantime, you can enjoy it here.
