Shortleaf is a duet (Michael Fraser and Tenley Hansen) from Missouri with strong ties to the traditions of the Ozarks. Founded by Ozark fiddler Michael Fraser, Shortleaf specializes in high-energy music rooted in celtic and old time traditions. Haunting ballads, rip roaring fiddle tunes with a dose of southern rock will provide an evening of what one may describe as "the real Mountain Music"!
Ozark Public Radio: Sense of Community Series by Mike Smith interviewed folks from the Ozark Heritage Festival. In this audio piece, fiddler Michael Fraser and festival organizer Kathleen Morrissey has some thoughtful insights on old time music in the Ozarks and this treasure of a festival!
