Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice are widely recognized as one of today's premier traditional bluegrass bands.  Heart of a Song was the 2012 IBMA Album of the Year and the single, "A Far Cry from Lester and Earl", the Song of the Year.  The IBMA voted Junior Male Vocalist of the Year in 2013 and the group won the 2014 SPBGMA Band of the Year.  With Poor Boy's Pleasure, their sixth album, they continue their tradition with “Longneck Blues” penned by Canadian bluegrasser, Mike O’Reilly, earning the 2016 IBMA Recorded Event of the year.  They play traditional bluegrass the way it should be played.  Come and enjoy!
