Their mission is to provide local entertainment, and through their recordings, share with a broader audience their celebration of the beauty and wonder of the Kansas Flint Hills and its ranching culture. The band has recorded four CDs, including a unique album series of 46 all-original Songs from the Kansas Flint Hills.

Last Minute Folk presents Greg Klyma in concert February 7, 2015
FEBRUARY 7th, 2015 – SATURDAY, 7:30 PM Greg Klyma is a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and seasoned performer, bringing to every stage a catalog of material that assumes his audiences are both smart and able to laugh. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare young artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin' Jack. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It's the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition. (www.klyma.com)
