Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Drums and Drones

Another of the "smaller" acts at the Carolina Renaissance Festival -- smaller only in that they don't appear on a main stage, but instead appear at a smaller section -- is the Drums and Drones. These guys play lots of neat music. I could sit and listen to these guys for hours -- only they seem to get tired of playing much quicker than I get tired of listening.

For bonus points, can anyone identify that instrument on the left? (And yes, it's a drone, but what kind?)
