the Knuckle Dusters have performed traditional old-time fiddle, swing, ragtime, country, blues, hillbilly-jazz, and celtic music for diverse audiences across the Mid-Atlantic states. While some bands are "jam" bands, the Knuckle Dusters are America's best "museum band" having performed for the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Textile Museum in DC, the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, and the Calvert Marine Museum on Solomons Island just to name a few. Animals love them too... having played for many species at the Central Park Zoo and the national Wildlife Conservation Society in New York City. The Knuckle Dusters book events as a duo, trio, foursome or fivesome. Concert videos are available here and on YouTube. The Knuckle Dusters are colorful characters with a deep repertoire matched only by their miles of musical experience.
