Short version:

Shortleaf is Missouri's own Michael Fraser specializing in "songs from yesteryear".  Michael is known for his rip roaring fiddle tunes, making this "the real Mountain Music"!

Long version:

Shortleaf  has strong ties to the traditions of the Ozarks.  Founded by Ozark fiddler Michael Fraser, Shortleaf specializes in high-energy music rooted in Celtic and Old Time traditions.  Haunting ballads, rip roaring fiddle tunes with a dose of southern rock will provide an evening of what one may describe as "the real Mountain Music"! 

Snorty Horse:

"Authentic and driving Ozark Music from folkmasters Barton, Para, Fraser and Hansen best describes this quartet appearing to create a show that will make you proud to be an “Ozarker”, even if you’re not. The music is masterfully delivered whether it be a driving square dance tune, or a soulful ballad learned in the Ozark Mountains, and re-created using authentic Ozark instruments. Flatpicking, frailing, sawing and singing on guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and piano with tight vocal harmonies are all packed into the performance. This is the real “Mountain Music.”
