Album Notes
‘Holy Water and Whiskey’ plays acoustic traditional, folk, bluegrass, gospel, cowboy, etc and some select “whiskey” tunes. The group bases it’s selections on solid and straightforward instrumental playing with a special focus on the vocal harmonies found in the songs that they play. They also enjoy having fun with their audience in the genuine belief that music and laughter are universally healing.
The group consists of Maggie Washburne on bass, Scott Altenbach on guitar, and Bruce Washburne on guitar and banjo. Bruce and Maggie met in a band in Hawaii in 1977, were married, and have been playing music together ever since. In 2003 they joined musical forces with Scott, former hard rock miner and Colorado musician, and the trio has been playing together ever since.
They also commune with the roots of their music as farmers, Scott owns and operates a farm near Albuquerque and Bruce & Maggie own and operate a farm near Cuba, NM. They all got their start playing and performing during the folk movement of the 60’s and 70’s, and their musical tastes have evolved since then to include many other acoustic styles. Their new CD “Better Late than Never” reflects these varied interests.

I enjoy the group and I enjoy having the music CD

Better Late Than Never
I first heard them live at a organic garden, I was drawn in to sit and soak in the garden smells and the lovely tunes. I have been listening to this CD while working in the backyard and the lavender smells come back. The CD is fantastic.


One voice, Let the Mystery be, etc...
I attended church at FCC this past Sunday and was grateful to hear and see them perform. They have beautiful, extraordinary voices.

Great CD!
I can't believe that this is your first CD - you guys are great! I love your harmonies and your choices of songs. Can't wait for the next CD!

Better Late than Never
Great CD---when I lived in New Mexico I used to go hear them all the time. I'm glad I can finally listen to them again. Thanks!
