Dearest Kinfolk, 

  Grab your moonshine, sit back on your front porch rocker and let The Next of Kin weave a patchwork of rustic sounds with a modern flair.  We want to take you on a journey through the Heartland, from the Delta to the Bayou and everywhere in between.  You're in for a real humdinger, recalling you to the great American heritage that binds us all.  With original songs that harken back to a time when the juke joints were covered in sawdust, The Next of Kin will be the melodic thread that binds the community together as it once was.  

  We welcome you to join our family.  Let us count you as our kinfolk.  Come on down in your combine harvester or hitch up your filly and explore your musical roots with us!
