'The Flatland Ramblers, (formerly known as The Flatland String Band,) a traditional old-time band based in Polk County, Iowa, plays a lively mix of American mountain tunes and Celtic instrumentals. If you like music of the 1800s as it was played in 1975, you'll love this band! Funky enough for a barn dance, hip enough for the coffeehouse, we play 19th century music for the 21st century. Perfect for farmer's markets, Civil War reenactments, Renaissance fairs, céilís, keggers, political rallies, weddings, wakes, hog roasts, hoolies, hoedowns, shindigs and shivarees!"
