Stanislove says, “I’m a songwriter who started out ages ago as a folksinger—but Blues soon became my favorite folk music—a keen observer of life performing roots blues and original songs on acoustic guitar and bottleneck dobro, with friends occasionally joining in on a variety of acoustic instruments in the American tradition. We play with heart, humor and passion in a style designed to get your feet and body moving.”
