We hope the summer has started off in grand style for you and hope there’s a few music festivals on your summer agenda!
Our travelling amd festival appearances have been been ramping up the last few months and attendance has been really good at the shows we’ve been appearing!
Our new Rounder recording, “Didn’t He Ramble -Songs of Charlie Poole” was released to the public just a few days ago, on June 1st and we wanted to share with you some great things happening with it, right out of the gate!
A pre-release online sale for the album during April and May was very productive, with Bluegrass/Oldtime/ Folk music (Roots music followers, in general) enthusiasts showing great interest in the concept of re-imagining/evolving Charlie Poole’s music and our treatment of that concept.
After the first eleven days since June 1st, the recording has topped three AirPlay Direct Charts at the same time, and as I’m writing this, still holds those chart positions! Very thrilling!
And through this great interest by the DJ’s across Blue Grass Country, we’ve had many opportunities to tape interviews with them, which they have and will be sharing with their audiences throughout the Country.
Here’s a couple of links to very recent interviews:
1) Steve Martin’s Unreal Bluegrass:
2) Back 40 Radio w/ Ron Moores Ottawa,Ontario:
3) Flashpoint Radio w/ Jeff Miller:
Here’s a link to the Bluegrass Situation’s adding the album’s version of “White House Blues” to their “Class of 2018” playlist on Spotify :
