"TO QUALIFY: To be in the realm of "bluegrassy," you must have either a banjo or a fiddle (no violins)."

Here's a direct link to the rules: http://steampoweredhour.com/battlerules

Mandolins are, of course, welcome - as are violins disguised as fiddles!

Hope to see you there!

Just a heads up to those whithin striking range of NYC -- The Steam Powered Hour is a great monthly show, normally based in Brooklyn. Host, NYer cartoonist Mathew Difee is a mad genius. Find them on FB, or elsewhere on the interweb. Plan your next vacation around one of these oddly endearing shows. Yes!
