8 More Miles by Rattle on the Stovepipe

Summary

This acoustic aggregation comprises:

Dave Arthur (banjo,guitar,melodeon
Pete Cooper (fiddle,viola) and
Chris Moreton (guitar,mandolin)

and all share the vocal duties at various times and in varied combinations.
They've been together for some years but this is the first recording under the bands official name.
In these days of too clever-clever Americana, its immensely refreshing to hear real old time music played with such verve and melodic nous, by musicians at the very top of their game. Many of the ballads and tunes collected in the US had, of course, their genesis in these isles and the repertory here is best described as Anglo-American.
Here are tales from the dark side supernatural, mysterious, compelling. Of death, true love and false lovers. Sentiment in spades. this hits every spot available!..........Clive Pownceby
