Sans Abri is the French term for "homeless." As founding members of The Packway Handle Band, Josh Erwin and Michael Paynter had written songs that had not found a home in the band's bluegrass based format. It was from this that Sans Abri was born. Using a cajon to loop live drum beats and alternately adding acoustic and electric guitar and mandolin the band creates a unique sound that steps away from their bluegrass roots and finds itself in the realm of Americana Alt-Roots.
