FOGHORN STRINGBAND 'Outshine the Sun'

  • $13.50


After reviewing and stocking  three very nice albums of old time music put out between 2002 and 2007, we heard little of this Oregon based group until the release of this record—another excellent effort that should please most old time fans.  (The band has evidently been active in the meantime with solo, duo and trio projects in the intervening years).  There are 21 tunes and songs here, and the program proves again that Foghorn knows how to pick out good material.  The numbers are split pretty evenly between songs and tunes—some of the latter are good renditions of INDIAN ATE THE WOODCHUCK, WESTERN UNION, HORSESHOE BEND, SALTY RIVER and  JONES WALTZ.  The singing is handled by all four group members  (Caleb Klauder, Sammy Lind, Nadine Landry and Rebecca Williams).  Three songs are Carter Family favorites (DISTANT LAND TO ROAM, GOSPEL SHIP and HOMESTEAD ON THE FARM); other sources include Uncle Bob Walters, John Ashby, Charlie Poole, Garry Harrison, Dwight Lamb and Charlie Poole.   A fine old-time record.
