Hot Iron String Band

Hot Iron String BandThe Hot Iron String Band is a four-piece acoustic ensemble featuring Samuel Payne on guitar, Dustin Norder on mandolin, Jeremy Koch on banjo, and Nolan Lee on upright bass. Their inspiration is drawn from the hard-driving back-beat pulse of Bill Monroe’s bluegrass, the infectious swing of Django Reindhart’s gypsy jazz, and lonesome moan of a honky-tonk blues. And just like the roots from which their musical vision has grown — steeped in the age-old tradition of breaking the rules — they do it just a little bit different.
