THE YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS perform original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo, and old-time musical traditions--and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again. Their 2015 album, "Ocooch Mountain Home," (their second), has received high praise from the likes of fROOTS, Bluegrass Today, and Country Music People UK. Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.

“Enchanting harmonies… note-perfect old-time fiddle playing…” --fROOTS Magazine

The roots of western swing can be found in the race and hillbilly catalogues of early recorded music. It was the sound of rural America hearing itself for the first time, interpreting the hits of the day, or offering a bit of what they had to say. I call it "the treatment." Basically, it’s making any thing as danceable and fun as you are able. It happens in New Orleans to this day, everyday.
