Like their namesake, this band “starts off mild, and then builds, with a long finish on the palate. It has a roasted, fruity and slightly salty flavor.” The Mortgage Lifters are Kim Thal, Robert Hinrix, Johnny Calcagno and Tony Mates. They play fiddle, guitar, ukulele, mandolin and upright bass and sing 3-part harmonies.
