Music You Don't Know You Like Yet




Swimming with the soul of Appalachia this contemporary folk troupe tells tales of poverty, love and of course, the mountains. While still rooted deeply in the sounds and stories of long ago their sound still is relevant to modern day ears.

“Canary” is a concept album focused around a great depression era family who is trying to outsmart the dept collectors and make a living coal mining. The record is able to the tell us about the present by referencing the past.

Recommended tracks: Adeline of the Appalachian Mountains (5), Red Lake Shore (6), Summer and Her Ferris Wheel (9), Ruthie (10)
