After an unfortunate cancellation last summer, the Cradle of Forestry is happy to welcome back this duo from the South Carolina Upstate, Bob and Amy Buckingham. The Buckinghams have been performing together since 2002. They share a wide range of Americana from old time, folk and blues to fiddle tunes and contemporary material, including originals. Their CD, Chickens in Paradise, came out in 2016 and features a wide range of material that reflects their live shows.
