Ryan Herman & Karl Hartwich

In response to the numerous requests to share their music, Ryan Herman and Karl Hartwich are pleased to announce the release of their first recording together, featuring 15 songs of old-time and variety music. This relatively new musical combo – consisting of Karl Hartwich on concertina, and Ryan Herman on keyboards and vocals – has been delighting audiences for several years together and for a much longer time with their respective bands, Karl and the Country Dutchmen and the Rhythm Playboys. Karl and Ryan are fun-loving entertainers from Wisconsin who are at home on stage. They enjoy making music, traveling, and meeting old and new friends along the way.
