Dick Daniels, Tommy Jordan, Ned Gardiner and Ben Jordan perform at the
27th Annual Athens Human Rights Festival in downtown Athens, Georgia.  April 23, 2005.

Generally configured as a traditional, fiddle-and-banjo-driven 5-piece old-time band, we have had as few as two and as many as nine acoustic musicians for various shows.  For the 27th Athens Human Rights Festival, however, String Theory was a quartet featuring Tommy Jordan on guitar, vocals and mandolin, back for his 27th consecutive year at the festival, Dick Daniels on bass and guitar and Ned Gardiner on clawhammer banjo.  Special guest appearance, for his first time on this stage, was made by Ben Jordan (upright bass).
