Although you may know them as Beans, the Haystacks have been playing at Porchfest for three years. They are a 6-member old time/bluegrass group, and their band is what they describe as “Just friends having a good time”. In the band is Charlie on lead vocals and guitar, Norm on the guitar, Mo on the banjo, Jeff and Jan on fiddle and mandolin, and Will on bass. Mo, Jan and Jeff also sing back up vocals.
This Acoustic Americana band has 4 members: Ann Goldman (Violin, Keyboard, Vocals), Alan Zacharias (Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals), Larry Bennett (Guitar), and Jeff Lyons (Percussion). This group has been at every single Porchfest yet–we can’t wait to here from them again!
We’re very excited to have this group back for their fourth year! Their music style is a unique and interesting mix–gypsy jazz, swing, jazz standards, and bossa nova. In their band is Dan Ault (Violin, Mandolin, Vocals), Jim Woodson (Electric Guitar), Darren Wagner (Bass), and they have a rotating list of drummers as well. Be sure to see their website!
