An entertaining and humorous fusion of bluegrass and hip-hop

For an evening full of laughs and delightful bluegrass music, the “backwoods” family band, The Cleverlys, is first-rate entertainment. Originating from a remote part of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas and led by comedian Paul Harris, the group performs bluegrass music to many popular songs. From 60’s rock to modern pop, all blue-grass style, it’s a hit with fans of all ages. The Cleverlys show is sure to be a knee-slapper and a toe-tapper good time.
