The Sons of Liberty – Three Inspiring Young Men

These three bothers (Josh, Noah and Daniel Smith from Jonesville, VA) call themselves The Sons of Liberty, and together they are keeping 18th century music alive by playing it. Reviving old songs in an authentic style, they play in state and national parks throughout the Northeast.

I found their playing , spirit and enthusiasm inspiring, and if you like early American fiddle music, I’m sure you will, too.

If you like their music they have a CD called Celebrating Early American Musical Traditions.
