Exploring the roots of American Music, these boys dynamically recreate the music of the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and other country music greats with wonderful harmonies, hot pickin' and yodeling madness, with guitars, mandolin, banjo, slide guitar and uke.  "Country music . . . with the hairy side out!".

A founding member of the seminal country rock group, Hearts And Flowers, he has performed in concert with Mason Williams (for whom he also produces), Emmy Lou Harris, John Stewart, Anne Murray, Jennifer Warnes, Buck Owens, and The Smothers Brothers, to name a few. His songs have been recorded by Ms. Warnes, Ian Matthews, The Smothers Brothers, Michael Johnson and many other artists. Mr. Cunha's solo recording career began with an album for the GRC label, that included his song "Yo-Yo-Man" which has since been immortalized on television and in concert by Tom Smothers. Other solo albums include: "Cunha Tunes" and "Moving Pictures".
