Rose’s Pawn Shop Entertains Fair Goers

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A collaboration of Folk, Bluegrass, and Americana style music rocked the tent last night at the Tanana Valley State Fair.
The high energy sounds of the fiddle, guitar, banjo, drums, and the Up-right Bass, make up the melodious sounds that bring together Rose's Pawn Shop.
The guys got their name when band mate Paul Givant's Girlfriend, stole their instruments and pawned them around town at local pawn shops, as an act of revenge. The guys were able to retrieve their belongings bringing home with them the name Rose's Pawn Shop.
Paul and Stephen Andrews talk about their experience in the last frontier and some inspirations that lead to their style of music.
"Fairbanks is awesome. We were just tripping out on being 11 o'clock at night, and it being so light out on the first day we were here, it was crazy. We started getting into stuff like Paul Simon, and we kind of weaved my way back to Woody Guthrie and all old-timey, like Fold Stuff. It kind of the more I dug the more I kind of like this style. But it just kind of fit the kind of songs I started to write," said Paul and Stephen Andrews.
Rose's Pawn Shop will continue their West Coast Tour through Canada performing in Anchorage and Healy, before making their way back down to the Lower 48.
