For a bunch of young guys from the hills of the South, traveling to the mountains of the West holds a lot of appeal.

The 23 String Band is coming to Wyoming for the first time in their careers playing The Beartrap Summer Festival Saturday afternoon. After a big year of touring in 2010 and a growing base of fans The 23 String Band has expanded their reach to include the Cowboy State in their 2011 Tour. Dave Howad and T Martin Stam joined Brian Scott to talk about the band and their trip West.

Our friend Dale Short put together a great piece on the boys in the band when the lineup was announced. Check it out by clicking here.
