Album Notes
The Tallboys are a four piece old time string band based in Seattle, WA. Well versed in traditional fiddle tunes and mountain songs, The Tallboys perform their music with driving rhythm and soaring melodies. They are honest to their traditional inspirations, yet charge up their sound with a raw edge of gritty enthusiasm conjured from their years of street performing.

Talented vocalists, The Tallboys all share the singing and harmonize to create a beautifully authentic old time sound. The instrumental line-up begins with Joe Fulton, from Iowa, who has been playing since boyhood. His impressive fiddling leads the melody. Charlie Beck, from Indiana, plays both clawhammer and three-finger style banjo and brings over a decade of musical experience to the band. He is also a talented songwriter, creating several original compositions. Longtime musician John Hurd, from Oregon, lays down that driving bass foundation essential to The Tallboys� rhythm. Charmaine Slaven, from Montana, fills out the sound with solid rhythm guitar and is one of the best clog dancers on the west coast. She has the unique ability to clog and play guitar simultaneously. Together, they blend the attributes of each instrument and vocalist, creating a cohesive sound.

Can't wait for the next one too!
A really good CD and a lot of fun to listen to. I'm glad I bought it. The best track is an original: Ida Mae. All the musicians can whip it out but I would have liked to hear more of Mr Beck's banjo. I can't wait for their next CD. Hurry! It's 2007 already!

Great CD
Great CD. Fun to listen. Very talented musicians.


not a bad track
I know almost nothing about old time-y music, I'm afraid, so I can't give what you would call an informed review. However, I heard these guys playing in the street while visiting Seattle and bought the CD and it was excellent. Not a bad track in the bunch.

Kickin' my dog
I bought this CD for my dad for xmas, but once I listened to it I decided to keep it for myself. They somehow make this old-time music relevant for today, and I mean a today that orders their music through a series of tubes. If y'all ever come to Arkansas, you so have a place to play/sleep/eat. Look for the Dinosaur House!

I've played it about 10 times and not tired of it yet!
This CD is awesome. I have played it about 10 times in a month, and I am not tired of it yet! Lots of times I buy a CD and after listening once or twice, I realize I only like 2 or 3 songs. There is NOTHING on this that I skip past. It all sounds good, it flows together really well, and based on this one I will buy more of you guys' stuff. Thanks!

Snappy & sturdy old-time that will elevate Tallboys to new heights
Playing Time – 45:00
Who They Are: Old-time pickers whose lively and infectious numbers will put vitality into your skip
What They Do: Supple and soulful old-time dance music
Little Known Facts: This is their third album. Find them busking for hours in Seattle’s Pike Place Street Market or performing at many of the regional folk festivals in the west.
The Songs: Sixteen traditional tunes except “Ida Mae” penned by Charlie Beck. It appears that they like John Hartford and probably picked up “Squirrel Hunter” and “Wild Hog in the Red Brush” from Hartford’s Rounder album of that same name.
The Musicians: A traditional 5-piece string band lineup. Joe Fulton’s fiddle and Charlie Beck’s frailing banjo drive the band, and Paul McGowan’s mandolin, Rob Adesso’s guitar, and John Hurd’s bass fall right into the rootsy groove.
Of Special Note: Expressive vocal harmonies in the ¾-time “Henry Lee.” Nice personalized versions of such warhorses “Cumberland Gap” and “Mississippi Sawyer” and “Sally Ann.” The crowning moment is “Squirrel Hunter” that radiates the raw energy and saucy attitude of youth.
Any Downside: Include liner notes, lyrics, photos in future albums. Provide vocal credits and info on the tunes. Find a couple real cool crooked tunes for your next album.
The Bottomline: An affable set of traditional tunes that will elevate The Tallboys to new heights
Their Bumper Sticker Might Say: Snappy and sturdy old-time

I like this full string band sound!!!!!


Great cd...
I saw The Tallboys performing on the streets of Seattle, and I regretted not buying the cd then! The only thing the cd is lacking is the tap dancing drum section, which was actually my favorite part of the live act!
