While they've made their reputation on the jam-band circuit, their newest album includes collaborations with Tom Rothrock, James Blunt, Beck, and many other luminaries outside of the bluegrass world.

The stopped by the studio to talk with Steve Seel.

Songs performed: "Classic Situation," "Night Out," and "How 'Bout You?"
