Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Big Leg Emma

Gramma Don't Like That

2008-05-05

Big Leg Emma is a six member Americana Folk Roots Rock band from Jamestown, New York. They are most certainly in their element playing live combining folk, bluegrass, Cajun, Alt- Country, Rock & other sounds to create a true American landscape of sound. Combining both Male & Female vocals BLE is a large part Donna the Buffalo mixed in with elements of Poi Dog Pondering. This CD recorded live in Erie Pennsylvania showcases both the high energy & fun this band brings to the stage. Most tracks are originals with the exception of Minor Gadget & a really nice cove of Steve Miller’s classic “The Joker”. The only unanswered question I still had after listening to this disc is who is Emma? - Gregg Saur
