Band namesake Tim Menard is a Chicago veteran. Tim’s hand-picked a coterie of his favorite players – his wonderful, fiddle-playing bride, Cathie Van Wert Menard, veteran bass ace Michael Krayniak, pedal steel guru Gabriel Stutz and drum legend Paul Bivans. Featuring Tim’s indelible original tunes mixed with some carefully curated covers, the Menards spin aspects of folk, rock and country into a rich web of Americana.
