Musicians with a palpable sense of place, the members of Finnders & Youngberg have laid strong foundations as veterans of the vibrant Colorado Front Range acoustic music scene. Two-time MerleFest songwriting competition winner in both the gospel and bluegrass categories, Iowa native Mike Finders possesses an arresting and emotive stage presence. The principal songwriter and guitarist for F&Y, his finely-honed storytelling forms the bulk of the band’s cannon. The group swims in the deep currents of American music: bluegrass, honky tonk & country swing.
Erin Youngberg (“E”) provides a muscly bass and beautiful, world wise vocals, while husband Aaron Youngberg (“AA”) plays a mean banjo and seductive pedal steel. The group is rounded out by Rich Zimmerman on mandolin and Ryan Drickey on fiddle.
Kick off the summer as with Finnders & Youngberg at The Paradise Theatre this Saturday June 13th at 8:00pm.
