Elbo Finn a FolkCore Band, was officially formed in 1994 and brings its eight years of experience to the River City Saloon this Friday. After aquiring Maurice Hille on drums the band quickly went into the studio to record a five song CD. Thimble & the Wheel was released fall of 1995. Almost immediately the first single Freezer Hash began getting normal rotation spins on alternative station KXRK 96.3FM Salt Lake City, Utah. At this time the band focused their attention mainly on saturating the Salt Lake City club market. With the help of Freezer Hash Elbo Finn was playing packed venues week after week.

After a year of hard studio work the Finn boys returned with 1997's Cryptogamy Kills Cowboy.September 3, 2002 midnight read more..
