The Bow-Legged Skeeter are a 5 piece band playing hard driving Bluegrass and American Old-Time music with an emphasis on strong vocal harmonies. Our influences span American Old-Time and Original & Modern Bluegrass and stretch typically from the Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs to Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski, Mountain Heart, Blue Highway and the Steeldrivers, with a bit of Gospel thrown in for good measure.
