Band Biographies: Tom Hagymasi | Paul Howard | Phil Zimmerman

"Demonstrating a respect for tradition, Last Fair Deal presents a creative
mix of enlightened acoustic music drawn from tried-and-true catalogs
complemented by well-crafted original songs."

---Stephanie P. Ledgin, author, Homegrown Music

"Lively... Solid... A complete new acoustic package
worthy of attention beyond just the east coast."

---Sing Out! Magazine

Last Fair Deal continues to redraw the map of American roots music with fluid energy and creativity. Performing as a trio, guitarist Paul Howard, fiddler Tom Hagymasi and banjo/mandolinist Phil Zimmerman fan the flame that has kept this band relevant since the 70's. They're enjoyment of performing together is palpable and captivating!

Their live performances, with stellar vocals and unique acoustic synergy draw from an eclectic repertoire of old-time string-band, bluegrass, swing, and popular music. The band's shows feature originals from their current and previous three albums and they also put their own spin on tunes by John Hartford, Gillian Welch, Dan Hicks, Lennon/McCartney, John Hiatt, The Band and Bob Dylan.
