Uncle Flatty writes and plays honest original music that blends roots based Americana mandolin, acoustic guitar, and fiddle with alt-country pedal steel, guitar twang, and solid in the pocket rhythms. This sound, combined with haunting vocals and heartfelt harmonies, earned Uncle Flatty regional recognition as the "Best Blues/Country Rock Band" in the 2012 Whalie Awards. As comfortable with up tempo Cajun inspired 2 steps as they are bluegrass flavored sing-along's and high lonesome love songs, Uncle Flatty plays for the joy of the music and of the interaction with each other and with their audiences. In 2013, the band will continue to support their latest full length CD release "Broken Places" playing New England's clubs, Art Centers, Farmers Markets, college radio, and festivals all the while finalizing work on their 3rd release slated for late in the year.
