The Folk Tree

IPR/Tony Dehner

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.
