What are people saying about us?

By & By brought the Shenandoah Mountains to the banks of the Anacostia River with their impressive vocals, smooth-as-honey string playing and arms-wide-open stage energy. I thoroughly enjoyed the debut of their latest single, “Wait For Me.” (DC Music Download - Review: Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival)
While they rely on their extensive catalog of traditional music (their cover of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” is one of the best), three of the band members have all contributed to the songwriting efforts of their forthcoming album,Get It While You Can!.  ”It’s almost entirely original tunes, and we’re looking forward to having it at our shows and hearing what people think!'” (DC Music Download – Rising Artists By & By)
