About The Timber Rattlers
The Timber Rattlers are an energetic acoustic band that pulls from their bluegrass roots, but also strive to push the boundaries of their music. Fast paced dance songs and instrumentals, old school resonator blues and originals, as well as some surprising covers are sure to keep listeners engaged.
