Bluegrass & Beer w/ The Wool Hats

Hailing from a little cabin home off the lake in Monroe, CT, The Wool Hats is a five piece string band consisting of Matt Chimini (vocals/rhythm guitar), Nick Krashefski (vocals/bass), Ryan Mooney (lead guitar), Erick Feucht (vocals/fiddle) and Johnny Lee (vocals/mandolin).

The band came together when Matt and Ryan, who were performing as an acoustic duo, met long time musical partners, Nick and Johnny, at an open mic in Seymour. It became clear that their sounds complimented one another and soon they were performing as a four piece. Not long after coming together, Johnny invited his long-time friend, Erick, to round out their sound. Together, their style fuses bluegrass, new grass, classic country, blues and other acoustic influences. They have performed at many local venues ad festivals, including the Pickin' at the Ives (CT), Strand Ole Opry (CT), Georgetown Day (CT), the Johnny Cakes Festival (RI) and Spinstock (CT).
