Farmers Union PlayersA 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.

To quote Zack, "You never know when you're going to have to have a hoedown!"
