worthy of attention beyond just the east coast." ---Sing Out! Magazine
Last Fair Deal continues to redraw the map of American roots music with fluid energy and creativity.
Performing as a trio, guitarist Paul Howard, fiddler Tom Hagymasi and banjo/mandolinist Phil Zimmerman
fan the flame that has kept this band relevant since the 70's. They're enjoyment of performing together
is palpable and captivating!
Their live performances, with stellar vocals and unique acoustic synergy draw from an eclectic repertoire of
old-time string-band, bluegrass, swing, and popular music. The band's shows feature originals from their current
and previous three albums and they also put their own spin on tunes by John Hartford, Gillian Welch, Dan Hicks,
Lennon/McCartney, John Hiatt, The Band and Bob Dylan.
