The sophomore release from Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, The Farthest Horizon, is due for release later this summer.
The “Boys” are the three picking Mizzone brothers: 10 year-old Johnny on banjo, with Tommy (14) on guitar, and Robbie (13) on fiddle. Since becoming a YouTube sensation last year, their videos have been viewed more than 10 million times, leading to performances on The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS and Huckabee on FNC.
They wouldn’t share a track listing just yet, but Papa Tom Mizzone did indicate that the tunes include some originals mixed with bluegrass classics.
“The boys have enjoyed their first writing experience and are staying true to the classic, hard driving bluegrass sound that they’ve fallen in love with.
They’ve been blessed with the opportunity to bring bluegrass to a new audience and hope to continue the momentum with The Farthest Horizon.“
Their debut CD, American Music, has sold more than 7,500 copies, and the new album is set for release on September 25.
Look for it on the Sleep Man Banjo Boys web site, and in iTunes and Amazon.
