Description

"The bands repertoire is like a walk through the history books of old time country and blues music, from virtuosic fiddle tunes to Appalachian murder ballads to the greasiest of blues. These guys are gathering momentum fast, not just as fantastic performers, but as torchbearers of traditional music whose dynamic spirit is going to garner a whole new bunch of fans to these genres." The Irish World Old Sledge's first full length album showcases this band from the Blue Ridge mountains as a powerful folk force. Delving into the depths of southern mountain music they bring they're own creative energy whilst never losing touch of where they're from and how this music should be played. Moving from driving fiddle hoedowns to mournful ballads to greasy string band blues, the album features the tight dynamic instrumental work between Champion West Virginia Fiddler Chance McCoy and Banjo player Ben Townsend. Backed by a driving rhythm section the band is topped off by the excellent vocals and harmonies between Chance McCoy and Sabra Guzman. Far from being re-enactors of mountain music these players have all deeply studied and apprenticed with master Appalachian musicians and now bring there own voices to this unique tradition.
