Sleepy Men on Kimmel

As we noted on Sunday, Sleepy Man Banjo Boys were the musical guest on last night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

They performed for a very enthusiastic audience, debuting the title cut from their upcoming album, By My Side. Their new sound, featuring middle brother Robbie on lead vocal, is as much Mumford & Sons as it is Earl Scruggs, with a likely appeal for younger music fans.

Here’s the video from last night.


By My Side is available as a single now on iTunes. Look for the full album to hit on June 24.
