Roe Family Singers Band

Roe Family Singers perform a few amazing pieces at an event dedicated to exploring the narrative and ideas around agriculture and food.

The Roe Family Singers are a good-time hillbilly band that blends characteristic
old-time sound with rock and roll urgency and influence. Led by wife and husband
Kim Roe (Best Female Vocalist, City Pages/Village Voice) and Quillan Roe (Accident
Clearinghouse), the band features banjo, autoharp, guitar, fiddle, musical saw, bass,
and jug. The band was formally recognized among the region’s finest performing
musicians by the McKnight Foundation and is a two-time winner of the title
“World’s Best” at the nation’s largest and longest-running jug band battle.
