Bluegrass from the hills of New York


Cletus & the Burners may have started as an inside joke, according to their website, but these young men are making some good music in them northern hills. Based in the Ithaca, New York area, Cletus & the Burners have been playing their brand of Mountain music since 2001. Their website describes them as:
"Good Music. Five Young Men. Traditional Acoustic Instruments. One Quart Corn Whiskey."

You can't argue with those ingredients!
Cletus & the Burners are; Nick Aives on banjo, Phil Weinrobe plays the upright bass, Michael Penque on the guitar, Tom Eaton plays the Mandolin, and Ben Smith plays the Fiddle. All add their voices to the blend.

I like it, It is kind of strange to hear someone singing about the hills of New Jersey instead of Virginia or Tennessee.
I still like the sound. Good job Ed

You bet, Joey. That one line stuck out like it was some sort of joke, and may well have been.

Good sound, I like 'em. So does the fiddle player not merit a name?

Let's see, five guys, one, two, three, four, ...Oops!
I suppose my math isn't that good at midnight. Thanks for catching it, Lucy. (Damn! Someone really does read this thing!)
Ben Smith plays the Fiddle, I'll correct my entry so no one else knows.
