ABOUT STILL LIMBER

Still Limber takes their name from Randy's fine collection of limberjacks, which are traditional jointed figures that dance on a moving piece of wood. Limberjacks provide extra rhythm and a little bit of excitement to get the kids participating.

Randy Cato on banjo, guitar and harmonica brings his southern roots and love of old time music from the eastern hills. His voice is pure tradition. Craig Zumbrun plays 6 and 12 string guitars. He has performed folk and Celtic music with bands that led music in the early days of the PA Renaissance Fair.

Still Limber shines with vocals and harmonies that range across the octaves. They strive for full audience engagement, believing firmly that the folks make the most of the music.

ABOUT HANK IMHOF

Hank Imhof is a solo acoustic artist who skillfully covers the blues, jazz, gospel, folk, bluegrass, rock, and any combination of them all. A love of music and learning shows in an array of genres that covers decades of music. Uniquely mingling finger-style, flat-picking, and slide throughout his work on guitars, Hank also plays dobro, banjo, and harmonica that provides variety to his audiences.

Hank says he's been fortunate to find the Susquehanna Folk Music Society and has been associated with their music programs and family since 2000. The many SFMS concerts he has attended have inspired much of the music he plays. It was a strong learning experience to listen and talk to performers the likes of Tim O’Brien, Happy Traum, Del Rey, Scott Ainslie, Mary Flower, Ernie Hawkins, Martin Grosswendt, Roy Bookbinder, David Bromberg, John Doyle... and the list could go on for quite a bit more. Hank is a continuing student of music of all styles, mingling fingerstyle, flatpicking and slide guitar. This performance is a marker of how far he has come and how much further he can go.
