Mustang Sally & the Hamjos
Hamjo Band members have a long-standing history with music involvement individually, but they have joined together with a common interest to create good old-time music to entertain and retain the roots of our musical heritage to share with today's families. The Hamjo Band derives it's name from the Hammered Dulcimer's beautiful range of tone combined with the banjo's old-time plucking, done in Appalachian, claw-hammer style. This unique combination, joined by guitars, mandolin & vocal harmonies create an entertaining performance featuring old-time traditional tunes, waltzes, ballads, jigs & reels from the Celtic heritage of the early immigrants settling in New England and the Appalachian area of America, - music reflecting the many influences of the past.
