Posted by WVIA Admin on

Originally aired on WVIA-FM Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Wilkes-Barre native Abby Ahmad has been attracting attention nationally as a singer-songwriter, currently based in New Brooklyn, NY. She made her Homegrown Music debut in early 2013. That session showed some of her blues influence. Now her group, including her husband and another NEPA native Mark Marshall, have turned the quartet into an energetic but eclectic blues band called Fife and Drom. The group makes its Homegrown Music debut with new material.
