The Ridgewood Boys

Building on riveting father-son harmonies and a sound way bigger than two instruments should be able to make, the Ridgewood Boys make music that conjures up an Appalachian Sunday afternoon spent sitting on the front porch with friends and family. Chris and Rick Saenz love the old gospel songs, the ones you've known forever and the ones you haven't heard yet. Listening to the Ridgewood Boys sing is sure to lift your spirit and put a song in your own heart.
