Based on the music of Jed Marum and Hugh Morrison, Lonestar Stout brings an exciting and spirited mix of songs and fun to their performances – offering music, from Scotland, Ireland and America – from beautiful historic ballads to rowdy pub-style classics and ripping tune sets; they deliver! It’s a show marked by easy humor and gifted musicianship.
Since 2005 they have been entertaining crowds at festival, club and concert venues around the US with their unique blend of traditional and original music “that’s somewhere between the Pogues and the Chieftains!”
