Performance - Farmers Union Players
A union of players from New England. An Old Time String band, foot stomping, banjo rippin, old time musicians. Current line up includes Helen & Zack as a duet partnering with other New England Musicians. Helen Beaumont (singer) grew up on a farm in Ohio, brings the roots of her upbringing and singing in the barn through her powerful voice and foot stomping. Zack Slik (banjo/mandolin) seen on the streets and pubs in Worcester, never without his banjo, sets the place a blaze with his pickin' skills. To quote Zack, "You never know when you're going to have to have a hoedown!"
