Keeping old-time music traditions alive, the Oxcart Ramblers pay
homage to their musical inspirations. The Carter Family, The Skillet
Lickers, Tommy Jarrell, The New Lost City Ramblers, Kyle Creed, and
Woody Guthrie are among the many old-time musicians too numerous to
The Oxcart quintet is composed of Ryan Francis, aka Cousin Buster on
resonator guitar and harmonica, Bill Wilkie on fiddle and banjo,
Chuck Detmar on mandolin, Brian Conner on guitar and lap dulcimer,
and Mark Koranda on banjo.
Each member of the band has developed a personal and spiritual
relationship to this old-time music in his very own way. The one
thing they all have in common is the heartfelt joy that comes from
playing such genuine and honest music.
Whether it be a roof raising barn dance tune or a mournful mountain
ballad, the high energy delivery that the Oxcart Ramblers provide,
and the raw and earthy authenticity of this long ago music will have
you tapping your feet and thirsting for more. They guarantee it.
Take a step back in time; come listen to the Oxcart Ramblers.
