These three bothers (Josh, Noah and Daniel Smith from Jonesville, VA) call themselves The Sons of Liberty and are trying to keep 18th century music alive by playing it. Reviving old songs in an authentic style, they play in state and national parks throughout the Northeast. I liked their playing and spirit so much in this video that I just bought your CD.

Do you know of other videos they have? This was the only one I could find.

I had forgotten about this video of the Sons of Liberty performing at Heartwood. I am watching it now as I am working at my computer. I really like this early American music. They play just about every song in this performance that they have on their album. Funny thing, they don't have a website, Facebook, etc., so it's almost impossible to find out much about them and where they might be performing. Thanks again for finding this video @damfino 

Absolutely worth watching if you like early American Fiddle!

If you google Sons of Liberty Fiddle Trio you can find a couple events coming up this year in Virginia they will be playing at. Just have to sift through the rock band that is also named Sons of Liberty, lol. I think there is also another small bluegrass band by the same name.

Thanks, @damfino I have Googled them every way I can think of, but never thought of Sons of Liberty Fiddle Trio. I will check it out. I like this early American music even more than Old Timey. It is mainly British, Scottish and Irish, but the clean crisp tunes speak to me.
