The Tallboys

The Seattle based band The Tallboys will be at Wintergrass in 2008 playing an oldtime style of stringband music. They are a band of younger musicians who have studied the older styles and are bringing the older tunes to a younger audience. The band can be seen on a regular basis at both The Tractor Tavern on the second Monday of every month and Conor Byrne’s on Tuesday nights in Ballard, WA. Visitors to Seattle may also catch them playing at the Pike Place Market like in these two clips.
