Overview

Carrying on the tradition of the hobo lament into the new millennium, this quartet spins some fine old-timey music. Utilizing a guitar/bass/fiddle/banjo configuration, they wonderfully execute a host of traditional tunes. Particularly beautiful are a baleful "We Shall All Be Reunited" and a chilling "Warfare." While banjo picker Cary Fridley's vocals sound self-consciously nasal at times, her harmonies with banjoist Frank Lee are strong. This is earthy music carried out with genuine loving care.
