Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-06-19Folk-rockers Josh Joplin and Garrison Starr team up on this interesting set of traditional folk tunes reworked (and many of them revved up) to give us a fresh take on these historic musical touchstones. "Peggy-O," "Angel Gabriel" and "The Water is Wide" are examples of famous songs that will re-engage you once you hear these two musicians take them down new avenues. Doomed legends such as Hiram Hubbard and Joe Hill have their stories retold by the troubadours; Joplin and Starr also contribute their own song to the genre -- "High, Low & Wide" -- and it fits perfectly in this company. Nice project, and they promise a reprise. MJVD 06/09 F-Neo-Traditional
