Rubber Dolly

by The Tallboys

4th Album in the Tallboys discography, Rubber Dolly is the first to feature Charmaine Slaven on guitar & feet. Joe's fiddling is at it's finest on this album, as is the hard-driving rhythm of John Hurd on bass, and Charlie Beck's banjo playing is superb.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


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.

Rubber Dolly
This album is must have for anyone who is interested in good Old Time Music! They render classic fiddle tunes and tight vocal harmonies-strait from the source! The music of The Tallboys will inspire anyone from young children to older folks and everything in between. Rubber Dolly will send shock through your whole body, making you want to get up, grab a partner, and dance till the sun comes up!

Great Band! First heard this group at Pike Place Market in Seattle and was hooked. I listen to them at work and the day just flies past.
