Mix one part Texas fiddle and one part Tennessee banjo, add doghouse bass and a splash of guitar and you have one heck of a powerful punch called The Urban Pioneers. This string band hammers out a variety of original songs encompassing old time hillbilly music, western swing, rockabilly, and even a few gypsy songs for good measure. They spend about 75% of the year on tour around the world delivering their brand of high energy hillbilly folk music.

They say they’re ”accompanied on the road by a doghouse bass player, a guitar player, and whoever else they can find that can play something and doesn’t snore”, so expect surprises.
