ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Portland’s Foghorn String Band stands at the top of today’s vibrant old-time music revival and a fine example of what an unending revival it is. Each album finds them deeper into the tradition, more familiar with the rich resources of roots music, and more focused, but still propelled by that undercurrent of punk energy. ---Art Menius, WMMT

Internationally acclaimed Foghorn Stringband has been at the vanguard of a revival in American old-time music for over a decade now. They've traveled the globe, been signed to a major label, and inspired a new generation of old-time musicians, all without compromising their love of traditional American music. But they've gathered new ideas and new band members too. Their unique sound still comes from the fiery, intertwining melodies of Stephen "Sammy" Lind's fiddle and Caleb Klauder's mandolin, but now they're supported by the bedrock-solid rhythm foundation of Reeb Willms' guitar and Nadine Landry's bass. And when it comes to vocals, they deliver; four powerful and exceptional voices resulting in countless combinations of harmonies. A typical Foghorn set is based around exquisitely rare old-time tunes and songs, but a vast knowledge of early country music and recent explorations in Cajun song traditions have molded a powerful new sound. Any band would be happy to have mastered one music genre, but Foghorn Stringband have a roaming spirit, and are already sparking new revivals of American roots music traditions.

Wowing audiences across the country and across the pond playing over 200 days a year, Foghorn is one of the most sought after acts for festival stages and music camps, and ares band mates for world renowned master old-time musician Dirk Powell and Cajun legends Joel Savoy and Jesse Lege. On their critically acclaimed
CD, Sud de la Louisiane, released earlier this year, Foghorn draws from the same repertoire that has always inspired their work: the tunes and songs of the American South, from the hollers of Appalachia to the early days of country music. Together, they blend voices, repertoire and instruments to create a diverse performance true to the roots of American music, throwing some Cajun songs and Caleb Klauder's vintage sounding originals in the mix. Performing live, these multi-instrumentalists gather around a single microphone in the middle of the stage.

They play the old way, the way you'd have heard stringbands play on Southern radio stations back in the 1930s. They don't fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach deep into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the first place. It's a whole new world today for folk musicians, but the four powerhouse musicians in the Foghorn Stringband prove that they're still riding on the cutting edge, with one foot in the analog past and one foot in the digital future.

Among all the youthful groups playing old-time music today, The Foghorn Trio stands out from the pack. They deliver energy, authenticity and variety. The originals sound like ‘instant classics’. Their skilled playing and singing is always appropriate for the genre, whether it be old-time, bluegrass, Cajun or country. ---Paul Norton & Sue Malcolm, CFRO 102.7 'In The Pines,' Vancouver, Canada

All they have to do is play, and the power surges straight through your own chest. They let their own musicality and the tunes speak for themselves. —Old Time Herald

There's an honesty to this music....It's pure and simple, ingredients that often go missing in this day and age. It just makes you want to get up and dance. —The Old Time Herald

If the band has one goal, it's to get gritty, but in Foghorn's case, "gritty" does not mean rough or scratchy or untogether. It means with a huge wave of old-time noise bearing down. —Old Time Herald
