Mark Kos bio - July 22, 2005

We now have the bio for Mark Kos posted on the "Bios" link.
Take a moment when you get a chance and check out more about Mark!
With a little over a week to go 'til the fair show, we had a great rehearsal session last night, bringing all the new members together for the first time. Having Mark and Steve Feldbauer there just brings the bands sound home!
If you've heard us before, you won't believe what you're going to hear now - the show at the Clearfield County Fair on July 31 is going to be awesome!

Welcome Steve Feldbauer! - July 18, 2005

I'm very excited to announce that Steve Feldbauer, from DuBois, has agreed to become
a member of North Country!!
Steve brings a plethora (isn't that a BIG word for a redneck!!) of musical talent to
the band!
Along with his guitar, mandolin, and vocal abilities, Steve can play some fiddle and
banjo. And to add to that mix, he's an awesome songwriter to boot!! Look for some of
Steve's music to be played at our live shows, and don't be surprised if you hear it
on some of our future recordings! We'll have Steve's bio posted on the website soon.
I'd like to say that the upcoming shows at the Clearfield County Fair are going to
be the best yet! If you like what you've heard in the past, you won't believe the
sound we have now that Mark Kos and Steve Feldbauer have joined the band! YOU DON'T
Also, Brenda will be joining Bill and I at Gunner's Inn on Saturday night. It will
be a lot of fun, so hope lot's of you can make it!
