The band is definitely curved out by Vienna Linderman (violin/vocals), Rob Piekarski (acoustic guitar/mandolin), Expenses Fergusson (mandolin/banjo/bouzouki), Steve Demarest (bass), and Todd Yoder (drums). Burn off Witch Burn off gigged mostly round the Philly region for approximately four years before obtaining right down to business and documenting their first recording.
