Bluegrass? Of course! It's the common thread, the evolution of mountain string band music carried to the big city clear channel radio stations in the
1940's. Beyond? Could be a pre-bluegrass fiddle tune that came over from
Scotland or Ireland. It could be a recent song written by a folk master such as
Norman Blake. Or it might be a bluegrass tune from Liverpool.
It's just one of the names for the ubiquitous groundhog. Or woodchuck. Marmota
Monax (In some, well lubricated, circles AKA Whiskey Pig!) A team of
experienced musicians who entertain with acoustic music. Guitar, Banjo,
Mandolin, Octave Mandolin, Dobro, Resonator Guitar, String Bass and more.
"Whistle Pig was the perfect Blue Grass group to kick off our Antique
Tractor Show. They proved that Blue Grass and old tractors are a great blend.
Perfect weather, perfect setting and perfect music.
Can't wait to invite them back for next year's festival."
