Young Ancients unites John Magnie, Cary Morin, and Steve Amedée—three renowned performers from the popular Fort Collins bands, The Subdudes and Three Twins —in a band whose musical roots intertwine in an inspired blend of blues, folk-rock, soul, gospel, Native Americana, and New Orleans R&B. Fusing remarkable musicians’ signature styles yields a sound rich in vocal harmonies and unexpected instrumentation: soulful accordion, maverick percussion, and deft fingerstyle guitar. This alchemical collaboration combines an acoustic earthiness, brilliant musicianship, and a dynamic, ragged edge—a singular feat of seasoned musicians in the prime of their creative power.
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Arne G’Schwind has performed with many Bluegrass and Americana bands, including Nebraska Music Hall of Fame inductee, the Crazy Louie Band. He currently co-hosts a music program on KRFC radio and has recorded eight albums since 2005.
