The Back Porch Hounds, AKA the Hounds, perform a roots mix of country blues, old style jazz, celtic, oldtime and bluegrass.  For the most part we do old obscure music with a slightly modern edge.  We're also doing more and more original material.  We look like a bluegrass band from a distance and although we love and perform some bluegrass, we especially love tapping into the many roots of bluegrass.  You might even call our music a Bluegrass Family Reunion.
