The trio collided into being when the ill-fated crosswinds of chance brought together a maelstrom of bluegrass and old time talent. The recently deceased banjoist, Casey James Holmberg, along with now dead guitarist, Thomas Schulz, were brought back into being as the brothers Axel and Bernard Druthers, by the enigmatic workings of some mountain magic.

These Druthers Brothers descended into the deep chasm of Los Angeles where they began working with bass magician and demonologist, Noa. United as a trio, together they vowed to play bluegrass and dismiss worldly concerns, championing value and virtue wherever they never went.

Refreshment will be available from Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters during the event.
