About Us

Formed in 2008, the Muletones are an old-time stringband, headquartered along the sparsely populated line between Hudspeth County, Texas, and Otero County, New Mexico.  Offering a mix of antique fiddle tunes and folk songs of indeterminate origin, as well as early country and bluegrass selections rendered in old-time stringband fashion, the Muletones deploy the standard combination of fiddle, clawhammer-style banjo, and acoustic guitar, while also believing firmly the old adage "there's always room for cello" -- and bass whenever we can get it.
