Hear the strong harmonies, kazoos, and songs of Pushing Chain duo Boyd Blomberg on guitar and vocals and Adam Moe on fiddle and vocals. Join the entertaining duo as they perform their original songs.
Pushing Chain was formed in 2012 by Boyd Blomberg and Adam Moe. The duo, which has been performing together in various manifestations since 1997, plays roots and Americana music featuring Blomberg on guitar and vocals and Moe on fiddle and vocals. Pushing Chain plays original songs and some fresh new takes on old folk songs. The duo also features tight harmonies and a gonzo approach which keeps performances fresh and exciting, even if you have seen them before.
That gonzo approach leads to some interesting variations. You never know what might happen at a Pushing Chain show!
