Red House Records Stage
at The Hook & Ladder Theater: 5:00-5:50PM – Full Schedule
A common love of American roots music and a desire to make a living as songwriting musicians brought brothers Teague and Ian together to form Hobo Nephews in 2005. Like the traveling workers, or ‘Hobos’ of the depression era, the Alexy brothers use travel as means of making a better living for themselves. They have recorded 5 full length albums and performed over a thousand shows covering 42 of the lower 48 United States.
The Hobo Nephew’s sound has been a part of the Upper Midwest’s American roots music resurgance for the past decade. Their blend of folk, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll is uniquely their own, and celebrated by an ever growing grassroots fan base. Their song Old Number Four, from the new album American Shuffle, went viral with stories about the song on CBSSports.com, ESPN, The Jim Rome Show and other national sports outlets. Old Number Four gave the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank much deserved national attention.
