I disagree with "hands down winner in Bizarre", though anachronistic works well.
It is basically a fiddleless bluegrass lineup with a couple cool twists. (I highly doubt these guys would describe themselves as "bluegrass", but
regional definitions may allow it.)
Accordion features on only the earliest bluegrass recordings, before the style was codified.
Drums/percussion featured later and only in hybrid offshoots such as the Osborne Brothers (of "Rocky Top" fame) or (post-Monroe) Flatt & Scruggs. To
this day, NO self-respecting traditional bluegrass band will have drums or percussion.
What I really like is that these guys have kept the overall stringband texture, but abandoned the tradition of flashy, obligatory solos.
Cool find, thanks for sharing.
