The Lash

The Lash from Lansing, Michigan combines folk instruments like fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and even pedal steel guitar, with bass and drums, and the result is like little else found on the music scene.

Recent recordings have been described as Americana or Alt-Country, and some of the newest songs by The Lash could be called World Beat.
