I'd like to attend a show
“Blue Twangled Folk & Roll” is the genre Roy Schneider came up with to answer the often asked question, “What kind of music do you play?” Roy and his partner in music & love, Kim Mayfield, are in their 10th year of touring, with 2 successfully crowdfunded CDs that have charted well on Folk & Americana radio. Their late 2018 release 'Reckless Saints' features songs by both. Here's what some are saying about it-

"On the album, Schneider and Kim Mayfield, his wife and full-time performing partner, dance with elements of authentic folk, country, blues and rock as if they’ve been in love with them all their lives, which is probably true. Enlisting Blaze Foley’s old musical partner Gurf Morlix for help, Schneider and Mayfield cover Foley’s classic “Election Day” with rough passion, but the beautifully rendered “If I Die Tomorrow” and “Poison Arrow” swoon in their arms. All who cry out for salvation from Reckless Saints might experience the same effect." ~ Peter Lindblad

"Some publications have already likened Schneider to the best songwriters like Earle, Clark, and Lovett. The ringing impression from this offering is the seamless blending of so many forms of roots music. combined with meaningful and often insightful lyrics. It works beautifully.” ~ Jim Hynes
