image for Romney and Ryan Hit The Road Again..... For Music Tour
Donald "Wild Time" Rumsfeld joined the group at an album launch in 2009

Presidential candidate Mitt "Ragtime" Romney and his VP running mate Paul "Slowhand" Ryan are once again jumping in the bus and heading out onto the highways of the United States of America.

However, what is more surprising, is that this time they are doing it as part of a music tour - specifically a 49 date tour of their skiffle band.

"The Blue Hill Politic Minstrels" as they are known, took a break from their previously hectic road schedule for the presidential campaign but now, the widely ignored 'ole time' folky combo group are staging a long overdue comeback.

Romney, a keen cigar-box fiddle player, started the group in the late 90's with Ryan (well known for his performances on the tea chest bass) joining in 2007.

Former candidate John "Pa" McCain has been a sometime member of the group with his 'sweet and honey glazed performances on the comb and paper kazoo' (as described in Rolling Stone Magazine, July 2007).

It is unknown at this time if the skiffle act will be planning a follow up to the 2011 album "The Man Done Taken My Shoes", but music fans across the US will be hoping that it the case.
