Original Missouricana (rootsy, bluegrassy, folk country rock) for your listening pleasure.

This was a good band, I’m grateful for the fun we had and I’m proud of the music we made in the five years we worked together.
Steve O’Dell was the poet and the bass player, Pippa made the melodies, sang, and played rhythm guitar, Dave Bandy or Mark Ort added the electric guitar. That was PIPPA & THE STRAWMEN. Last gig was August 3, 2018.

Take a listen: Flies of July
