About The Green Fingers
TheGreenFingerswas founded in August of 2016 by former lead of The Rickshaw Road show, Austin Barrett. Barrett was seeking a tighter, more relaxed sound from his rocking roots when he created this band, and yet somehow the Rock always shines through. Over the course of their original hour-long set,TheGreenFingersmove through a complex scene of recent heartache, followed by the learning and experience gained from growth, only to emerge a better and more understanding group of musicians. Expect Americana, Country, and Blues to play a huge role in the sound of this diverse, and talented young 3 piece band.
