The Jericho Old Time Band is a group of old-time musicians who like to share the fun and variety of old-time music. Jericho presents an eclectic mix of American roots music including lively old-time fiddle tunes, lonesome ballads, early country vocal duets, mountain dulcimer, a variety of banjo styles and more! These talented musicians honor the rich traditions of the wonderful old tunes, while at the same time bringing their energy to make them their own.
Jericho features Dale Farmer, writer/director of The Mountain Minor, an award-winning movie depicting life of an Eastern Kentucky family that migrated to Cincinnati in the early 20th Century. Other musicians include Judy & Warren Waldron and Amy Clay. https://www.jericho-oldtimeband.com/the-mountain-minor
