About 40 Miles Home:
40 Miles Home was founded several years ago by several neighbors in the Alcova Heights area of South Arlington. Some say their rehearsals are an excuse to get together and drink craft beer. But in the process they have accumulated an impressive set list of Americana, bluegrass, indie rock, and original music. The band features Steve Schaible and Scot Hoffman, guitars; Rebecca Krafft, banjo; Karen Osterloh, fiddle and mandolin; Pete Neubauer, bass; Dave Foerter, harmonica; and Linda Powell, percussion.
