Gerry Tenney is the instigator and organizer of this project, singing playing guitar and mandolin, gathering together this fantastic group of musicians . The project melds together the music of Charley Poole and The North Carolina Ramblers with The Band of Woodstock fame. This will be a harmonic and instrument expansion for Poole and an acoustic adaptation of the Bands music.
