Sleepy Lou is a fiddle and banjo duo made up by Maria McCullough and Jonas Friddle. Maria hails from sunny California and Jonas from the mountains of North Carolina. The two met in Chicago, Illinois where they both teach at the Old Town School of Folk Music. When they aren't teaching, Maria and Jonas join up to play traditional dance tunes and songs from the U.S. and around the world. Despite the sleepy name, the music is lively and the times are good.
