About Setting Suns
Setting Suns is a 4 piece outfit based in the New York area, specializing in a rootsy style of music. Our set is informed and serves as an homage to the late great, legendary Levon Helm and his Midnight Ramble concert series that was held in his barn in Woodstock, NY. All the wood in the barn and the mix of instruments, songs and talent made for a very warm and rich experience. This is what we strive for in our sets. We mix mandolin, banjo, slide, acoustic guitar, harmonica, percussion instruments and bass with a selection of songs that will bring a smile to your face. We infuse different styles of music along the rootsy spectrum including bluesy & country rock, alt-country, americana, outlaw country to make for an authentic set. Some might call us purveyors of saloon rock or roadhouse rock. That's just fine with us.
