The Queens of Everything are a NYC trio that bring acoustic blues and country into a more modern setting. The group consists of Arminda Thomas on banjo, banjo uke and guitar, Jen Sirey guitar and Liz Schnore ukulele and guitar. Their individual vocal strengths bring out that tension you can only get by singing close harmonies that they use to create rich song-scapes. ----------------------- Roddy Barnes is an engaging and diverse musician/songwriter who has performed world wide including France, Germany, Jamaica, Monte Negro, Togo, Ghana, and the United States.
