The Splendid Anachronisms is an acoustic duo joined in 2021, hailing from Howard and Montgomery Counties, Maryland.  Our music focuses in Americana and Popular music, 60s through 2000s. The Splendid Anachronisms are Paul Armstrong (Group Lead), Columbia, MD - lead guitar, vocals, harmonica; electronic effects, and Mike Small, North Potomac, MD - guitar, vocals.  The Splendid Anachronisms derives its name from our time of life and the range of music we cover. ”Splendid” alludes to our contemporary creativity and adaptation … "Anachronisms" points to memories whimsically misplaced in time. We honor great material many have forgotten or never got to enjoy; likewise, we love playing music many wouldn't expect of our years. We play music for the sake of music and bringing joy to our audiences.
