Back then, they had no idea it would lead them to such auspicious destinations as the Newport Folk Festival, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and on tours with Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell and Trampled By Turtles. Along the way, they drew numerous accolades from a growing fan base and press alike.
