The Mound City Slickers play old-time string band music with passion, drive, and a great sense of humor. Hailing from the St. Louis region, The Slickers are in high demand for house concerts and for contra and square dances throughout Missouri and Illinois. Steeped in tradition, their concerts are a unique mix of hard-driving dance tunes, country harmonies, midwest fiddle tunes, rags, and other surprises that have made them favorites of the old-time string band scene. Their high-energy playing and ear for a good tune make for good listening, good dancing, and good times. The band is Sean Belt (ukuleles), Lindell Blackford (fiddle & mandolin), Bob Clark (banjo), Rich Egan (piano), Bill Stewart (fiddle), and new kid Rich Hibbs (guitar).
