THE BRAINSTORMERS are Mark Graham, Tom Sauber and Patrick Sauber and "in concert they produce a hurricane of Old-Time Music - a perfect storm of instrumental power and brilliant harmony singing illuminated by lightning flashes of lyrical and comic genius. Mark, Tom, and Patrick "brainstorm their way to a new and original sense of the classic sounds of Old-Time Music exemplified by the likes of Uncle Dave Macon, Ed Haley, Dock Boggs, George Pegram and Red Parham. This amazing trio will electrify you with their 'old, timely inventions'"
