“Old Stone Bridge” from World Wide Blue by Burlap Road
From my hometown of Pittsburgh Pa, I bring you Burlap Road. This is a Band that has been at this for quite some time. With years of experience as accomplished musicians they write and sing tunes filled with great lyrics and some of the best music you will listen to this year. Burlap Road should be on heavy rotation on every Radio Station that focus on outstanding music that deserves to be heard and that includes WYEP to NPR. So sit back and give a listen to my friends …Burlap Road
We will have a “Meet The Band” in a few weeks from Burlap Road and more cool tunes from their Album, Worldwide Blue.

BURLAP ROAD: WHERE AMERICAN ROOTS MEETS THE EXISTENTIAL HIGHWAY
Burlap Road – Acoustic American Roots From Pittsburgh, PA – the heart of America’s working class music and hearty good times – Burlap Road plays an eclectic mix of original, contemporary, and traditional American Roots music featuring acoustic guitar rhythms backed by djembe & electric bass beneath soulfully sung vocals, fiddle runs, harmonica solos and hot lead guitar riffs.

Something very Phish-like about the dejembe player’s tricky time signature and his stubborn refusal to let the rhythm settle into a Bo Diddley shuffle. Not sure what he has against Bo Diddley, but I trust his instincts. Heard these guys live a couple times and they kicked up a mighty dust, like beating your burlap rug on a clothesline. Finally, we get an official release. Long time coming. Thanks.
the fiddle and harmonica play really nice off each other, with the lead guitar constituting a nice thread. the sultry female back-up was a layer of icing. the dejembe player kicks it; got my feet tapping. thanks, scott, another great selection.
