Nathan Rogers and Dan Brown’s set consisted of folky numbers with Dan playing a righteous fiddle. Nathan played guitar and his ‘kazoo horn’as well as demonstrating his spectacular throat singing skills.

While Nathan tuned his guitar, he got Dan to explain their next controversial tune written by Luke Jordan in 1927. Dan had a few disclaimers about the prohibition era tune which told the tale of how some pretty heavy drugs could easily be purchased for relatively cheap at a time when alcohol was banned in the States.
