Crying Uncle with Andrew Osborn at Sunday Marin Farmers Market @ Marin Farmers Market | San Rafael | California | United States

“The New York Times listed the Sunday Market as one of the top places to visit in Marin. Visit the market every Sunday, rain or shine, and see why the Marin farmers market is one of the largest local gatherings in the state! The Marin farmers market is open every Sunday, year-round, rain or shine, from 8am to 1pm.” Crying Uncle is a bluegrass duo band from Northern California, consisting of the Quale brothers Miles (age 13, on fiddle) and Teo (age 11, on mandolin), in collaboration with guest musicians. The brothers, who are state and national fiddle and mandolin champions, have been featured on NPR’s The California Report and performed at venues such as IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Festival and CBA’s Fathers Day Bluegrass Festival. They are joined by fellow Rambling Minors bandmate Andrew Osborn, age 14, on bass. Known for his rock-solid rhythm and fiery bass solos, Andrew has had guest appearances with a number of Bay Area bluegrass bands, including Crying Uncle, 35 Years of Trouble, and Savannah Blu, and is a regular member of the band Festival Speed.
