Our newest group of bluegrass bandits is Famous Seamus and the Travelbongs. The scruffy gents hail from Kansas City, but you’re about to see them in Lawrence a lot more. They’re one of the more aggressive bluegrass bands we’ve seen here, with one member slapping that bass (on both the strings and the body of the instrument) harder than anyone we’ve seen around these parts. What these guys lack in winsomeness they make up for in washboard (we’re kidding about the winsomeness, they’re actually quite charming fellows). Enjoy a clip from the talented multi-instrumentalists below.
