From Gulfport, FL, the Muddy River Bottom Waders play old time folk, country-blues and bluegrass. Songwriter Patrick Liam Doyle leads the band on banjo and vocals, along with John Hoover on mandolin and father/son duo Scott and Hunter “The Kid” Fletcher on bass fiddle and guitar. At 14 years old, Hunter is a regular contestant in youth bluegrass guitar competitions at the concerts and festivals he and his dad visit.
