Court Ramaeker - Banjo, Mandolin, Bouzouki, Vocals
Court started playing guitar at the age of 14. After attending a bluegrass festival in East Troy, Wisconsin he was hooked on the sound and culture of bluegrass and folk music. He picked up the banjo and mandolin later in life and admits that music is always a work in progress. Court works as a Spanish teacher at Plymouth High School and enjoys traveling with his family, tending to his pond, gardens and animals on his hobby farm in Sheboygan County.
Danika is a born and raised Wisconsinite who began singing young, continuing a tradition her mom and auntie started over the
Mississippi airwaves many years ago. Danika and her husband
Dave have traveled together through their work over the last 10 years from NYC to CA and Europe and moved to Sheboygan County six years ago to settle a piece of land and start a family. She is pleased to find so many of the good people of Wisconsin love bluegrass as much as she does.
Dave listened to bluegrass and mountain music early on when he would spend long periods of time down in Asheville, N.C. developing a natural love for it. He plays guitar and mandolin and every once in a while some other instrument. He loves to play and sing with his wife whenever he gets the opportunity.
