The Down Hill Strugglers

The Down Hill Strugglers (formerly known as the Dust Busters) is an old time string band based out of Brooklyn, NY. They have release an album on Smithsonian Folkways Records and are extending the legacy of the New Lost City Ramblers by presenting the authentic sound of old time music to a new generation. The Down Hill Strugglers present a wide range of old-time songs, ballads and fiddle tunes in every performance. They are influenced and inspired by the direct fusion of Scots-Irish and African music that took place in Appalachia, the Western states and the Deep South from the earliest colonial times through the Second World War. The Down Hill Strugglers' music is infused with the old-time feeling and freewheelin’ energy present in the true diversity of American Folk Music. By carrying this music forward with authenticity and creativity The Down Hill Strugglers make it thoroughly contemporary, meaningful and fun!
