What does Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers say about Snor T. Horse?
"We all know and love Cathy and Dave, who are famous throughout the country for their traditional music, and they will be joined by Mike Fraser from Springfield MO. Mike tours all around the state with his music.  Together all 4 of them, Cathy, Dave, Mike and Tenley make up Snor T. Horse. They have played for us before and entranced us with their tight and driving music."
