folk fusion IN the dmv


Active in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, The Goodly Beggars draw on American folk, roots, Irish, and alternative music to craft new songs through old methods and old songs in new forms. Their latest tune, “Great Seneca Lake”, was recently the subject of a "Single Session" video by the Nashville media group, Amplify Entertainment. Their debut EP, “Chew the Pages”, is streaming and available and for download.
