Welcome to the web home of $4 Shoe, the southern music duo consisting of Morgan John on banjo & lead vocals and Tom Collicott on guitar and harmony vocals.  Now occasionally you may find Morgan playing the fiddle, guitar or uke and sometimes Tom will be playing the banjo or uke and singing lead, but that first configuration is what you're most likely going to hear.

Both Tom and Morgan can also be found playing quite often in the Atlas Stringband which is a rockin' 5 piece band that adds Paul Tolo on fiddle, David Parker on mando and Carmen Ficarra on bass.

The boys are available for parties, weddings, square dances (we can bring along a caller) and pretty much any other type of event you can dream up.
