Small Batch Band - Lexington, KY
Small Batch is a five-piece collective of that clusterfolk variety that steals handily from country, bluegrass, folk and old- timey music until it’s convenient to ignore those same forms in search of some other feeling or sound. There is more than a little harmony that happens all the time. Also: expletives, booze songs, songs about cheating, family tales and stories of love and hate.
