Both David Huebner and Sharon Martinson have classical music backgrounds supporting their current foray into Americana roots music. Some years ago you may've seen David on the Disney Channel, twice, as principal cellist of the Disney Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, which included a performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Or you may've run into Sharon deep in the forests of the southeast as she studied southern pine beetle ecology for her PhD at Dartmouth College where she also played french horn in their chamber orchestra.

Live Show Review - The Littlest Birds at The Laughing Goat in Boulder CO, Aug. 2013
"They're marked by the relaxed and nonchalant demeanor that comes with several months of being on the road, taking time between songs to tell stories and engage with the audience, and even inviting another band up for an impromptu jam in the second set. But there's nothing nonchalant about their musical delivery, which is as tight, polished, and professional as it is relaxed and uninhibited. Classical cellist turned old-time fiddler, Dave saws on the cello with the sophistication of a violin virtuoso. Likewise, Sharon could be plucking the lyre of Orpheus given the taste and delicate touch with which she handles the banjo." - Bekah Rolland, deFolk Blog
