America’s Music from Sleepy Man Banjo Boys

| September 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

America’s favorite pre-teen grassers, Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, have announced October 4 as the release date for their debut album, America’s Music.

It’s their instrumental tribute to their bluegrass forebears – their musical great-grandfathers? – with 12 tracks featuring the picking Mizzone brothers from New Jersey. Jonny is on banjo, Robbie on fiddle and Tommy on guitar, with Nashville aces Mike Compton on mandolin, and both Missy Raines and Mike Bub on bass.

The tracks are on the banjo-heavy side, in keeping with the youngest Mizzone’s recent notoriety on TV and Youtube.
