The Southwest Florida-based band Swamp Rats join us in studio for a live on-air performance!  Their self-described sound is “Florida folk with an edge,” though it can be difficult to pin them down to a specific genre.

Swamp Rats’ music encompasses an eclectic blend of folk, blues, Americana and bluegrass that is also infused with punk and metal.  When the band isn’t busy traveling and performing, they’re also working on a full-length studio album set for release in 2019.  We’ll hear from band members Andy Starkey (Banjo & Vocals), Scotty Crow (Guitar, Vocals & Cajon) and  Kale Rushing (Bass & Vocals).
