The Yawpers // Capon Crusade

The Yawpers hail from Boulder, Colorado. They are mostly a rock and roll band but since there is a mandolin on a couple of songs I guess they get filed in the Country section.  They aren’t country. If anything, there is a roots vibe that fits. They play acoustic guitars and have no bassist and don’t need or want one. A harmonica player was added a year or so ago to the lineup to round out the 4 piece. The sound is big and raw-the band makes a big sound by the drummer using two floor toms and huge kick drum.
