Little Red Shed

Ken Glastre, Charley Gurche and Kevin Brown have been performing together for nearly 20 years as part of the rhythm & bluegrass quintet Big Red Barn. "Little Red Shed" is the trio version of this combo, with a repertoire that travels the slower backroads of American Roots Music with an easy, intuitive sense of direction that can only come from a lot of musical miles travelled together.
