The Ozark Highballers are a four piece string band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. This old-fashioned ensemble features the rolling chords and bass runs of Aviva Steigmeyer on guitar, the rhythmically intricate string tickling of Clarke Buehling on finger-style banjo, and the dynamic melody duo of Seth Shumate on harmonica and Roy Pilgrim on the fiddle.
The Highballers provide music for square dances, farmers markets, public and private parties, as well as playing music on plain old street corners and front porches. Their music reflects the spirit and drive of the rural string bands of the 1920s and ’30s, particularly those of the Arkansas Ozarks.
