DRY BRANCH FIRE SQUAD 'Live at the Newburyport Firehouse'

DRY BRANCH FIRE SQUAD 'Live at the Newburyport Firehouse'

  • $13.50


A good new collection of songs & stories from this Ohio based band led by the inimitable Bluegrass humorist Ron Thomasson. There are 26 songs on this 2-CD set, and just as many monologues by Thomasson on a strange but clever range of topics from Grandma’s stove and John Duffey to Mel Bay, Hippies and the New York Folk music scene. The songs are a nice mixture of old-time and Bluegrass (including a couple of Gillian Welch songs) played with love and enthusiasm. But the real feature still is the droll humor of Thomasson—unique, to say the least. The 2-CD Set is $ 16.00
