Brian "Boo" Greenway is here to tell you a story, and he wants you to come along for the ride. "Boo" has been back on the music scene for the last 5 years, and he's a regular guest at Wolvenwold in Southern Missouri and Freeman Sanctuary in Paragould, AR.

They pride themselves in being the region’s only band to take listeners on a world tour of sound from Cairo to Clarksdale, to the Serengeti with reaches into Celtic realms. Their percussionists have played together for over 10 years and offer a rich heartbeat for people to enjoy a live pulse rarely encountered in our modern day virtual lives. As they like to say, "take a trip to the canyons of your soul, you will be experienced".
