Longer blurb:

The Virginia Creepers love tunes and songs from Appalachia and beyond and have been playing old- time music in New Mexico for more than 25 years. Their repertoire includes weird, old, crooked tunes from exotic places like West Virginia and Kentucky, lively dance tunes that they play for squares and contras, and songs about hard times, trains, and whiskey, all ranging in age from the Civil War era and earlier to newer pieces in the old-time style. The band features Rick Olcott on guitar, Scott Mathis on mandolin, Jane Phillips on fiddle, Laurie Phillips on mandola, and Marc Robert on bass and banjo. All of them sing now and then.

Based in Albuquerque, they play around NM and beyond for dances, parties, and festivals, and as soothing background music for the quiet and studious patrons of saloons and taverns.
