The foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, also known as "The Leatherstocking Region" is home to Floodwood, the northeast's newest progressive string band. It's members are veteran musicians who've performed on stages around the world over the last 20 years. They are breathing fresh life into timeless acoustic music & play with the dexterity & chops of seasoned pros. Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico, not only play together in Moe, one of the premier touring bands in the country, but they've also spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Americana group, Al & The Transamericans. Likewise, Jay Barady spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Bluegrass group, Wooden Spoon from Taos, until returning to his hometown in central, NY. Nick Piccinni is a classically trained violinist, who learned his bluegrass chops the old fashioned way - in festival picking circles. He's an award winning banjo player & fiddler in high demand on the NY bluegrass circuit. Bass player, Zachary Fleitz is an avant-garde bassist, not unlike Wooten & Oteil, & has even developed his own patent pending midi instrument - "the midi wing chun dummy".
