The Sleepy Hollow String Band, from Westchester County, NY, is an acoustic bluegrass band covering a wide range of American traditional "roots" music. Their influences range from Flatt and Scruggs and Ricky Skaggs to Johnny Cash, George Jones, Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie. Connie McCardle, the lead singer and guitarist is a haute couture dress designer by day and by night brings an honest and authentic southern vibe to the blues-inflected tunes that she sings. Cousin Bob Bernstein’s mandolin chop is always where it needs to be, at the edge of the beat and driving the band. While he is a school psychologist by day, he swings the band with his saucy lead playing..... Ben Freed, on banjo, is the band's unofficial but never reluctant leader(He is also the band's optometrist). You may have heard his banjo playing on the soundtrack of The Simpsons TV show or the film "Raising Arizona". Rick Brodsky, also a psychologist, contributes the band's rhythmic foundation on upright bass with his rock-solid sense of timing.... firstname.lastname@example.org
