We are an acoustic duet featuring guitar and 5-string banjo, duet harmony vocals and a very wide repertoire of entertaining selections, vintage country, 60s-70s covers, bluegrass, jazz, rural acoustic blues, Cajun, and Irish. David Stenshoel is a widely acclaimed Irish
and jazz violinist who also supplies harmony vocals. Below is a concert/workshop review:

"The BDs duet brought their own inimitable bluegrass based music to the ITOW Veterans Museum on Sunday, July 8th (2012). The program, called “All About Bluegrass” included some great tunes as well as fascinating facts about a style of music that is uniquely American. David Stenshoel has decades of accolades, 1980s to presentet with such groups as Radio Rangers and Celtic rock group, Boiled in Lead. Steve Howard has been performing American roots music on his acoustic guitar and banjo for over three decades and is a walking encyclopedia of blues, jazz, folk and bluegrass music. The happy audience at the ITOW Veterans Museum enjoyed both the music and the education. We hope to see them again soon." – Lina Belar, Director, Vets Museum, Perham, MN.

Our backyard gathering was complete with The Blue Drifters Duet. Not only talented, but fun and accommodating to budget needs. Wish we would've booked them longer.
