NYC based Banjo Nickaru & Western Scooches is explosive! Perhaps the only band fusing world music with folk, roots, music of New Orleans, 1920s and originals.
We are delighted to be playing NERFA Semi-Formal this year and are looking for opportunities to perform and showcase.

Band members have played with the likes of Paul McCartney, George Benson, Jimmy McGriff as well as performed on ABC's Good Morning America, WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Kansas City Folk Festival main stage via Folk Alliance International, upcoming 2017 NERFA Semi-Formal, Blue Plate Special, Extended Play Sessions (The Alt. Root), Relix featured videos (I'm Gettin' Married and Misfits' Halloween), NPR Tiny Desk 2017 contest submission site, Horses Sing None Of It TV show, John Platt's WFUV FM, On Your Radar (Rockwood Music Hall) and appeared in movies such as Mona Lisa Smile (with Julia Roberts), Away We Go, Disney's Enchanted and PBS Masterpiece The Chaperone.

#5 Artist, #6 Album, #7 Song on International Folk DJ Chart Sept. 2016
