NONESUCH



cd

Released: 27th Feb 2012

£12.99


the follow up to their grammy winning ‘genuine negro jig’ continues to breath life into old-time fiddle & banjo music.

produced by nashville stalwart buddy miller, this 15-song collection incorporates more overt blues & jazz elements & straight-up folk balladry alongside brilliantly rendered string-band tunes. the title track is an elegiac piece recounting the falling fortunes of a north carolina mill town, sung with plainspoken eloquence & underscored by mournful cello. they take an overtly bluesy turn on ethel waters' 1920's-era wry confession, ‘no man's mama’ & bring a hip hop-style, declamatory flair to the self-penned ‘country girl’.
