Some friends of mine that live off the grid have been entered into a contest and have asked people to share their entry on other forums and social media, and if enough people vote for them then they could win.
Last year they made it to the semi finals (not bad for an independent, off grid folk band) and this year could be even better.
The band is known for being DIY and living a more primitive life with their 3 (maybe 4) kids.
Wow! I like them, their music and the video.......I voted and now I'm listening to the rest of what they have on youtube.......thanks for posting
