Poor Benny

Poor Benny  –   We Play Old-time String Band Music –  Performance – Events  – Dances

Welcome to Poor Benny’s page on Corey’s blog, Paddlin’ Madeline.  Listen to some of our tunes and take a look at some casual video of big fun at the St. Paul Farmers Market.  Experienced festival performers and dance musicians (and dancers as well) Dave, Clayton and Corey play the classic chestnuts of the old-time repertoire.  We pull back the veil to reveal obscure and rarely heard tunes as well.  Hard-driving fiddle, ballads, morality and mortality tales, funny songs and humorous ones too.  And… the flying feet of Clayton Schanilec add to the fun.  For booking information, call Corey Mohan at 651.368.6316 or Dave Furniss at 651.699.0557 or send us an email at coreymohan@gmail.com.

Here’s some tunes from our self -titled CD for your listening pleasure. I hope you enjoy them.
