Old Virginia by Rattle on the Stovepipe

Summary

Rattle on the Stovepipe sing and play American traditional ‘Old Timey’ music with a classic lineup of guitar, banjo and fiddle.

‘For a rattling good time, let Pete, Dave and Dan rattle on YOUR stovepipe! Great songs and tunes, mostly fiddle-led, but with fine work on banjos, guitars and (sometimes) melodeon, as well’ - Tom PaleyIn 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. Sentiment in spades. this hits every spot available!..........Clive Pownceby
