Minnesoat Blue are a joy to work with, from start to finish. They were very much on time to our wedding, got set up quickly, and launched into a series of great Bluegrass sets. They interacted with our party and were easy to work with. Outstanding level of musicianship, and were a real crowd pleaser. We will certainly hire them for future events!
