Rounder Records has just posted audio samples from the upcoming release from Uncle Earl, Waterloo, Tennessee, their second for Rounder. It was produced by John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin fame) and features the same brand of raucous old time and folk music as their debut project, She Waits for Night.
The new CD is set for release on March 13, and pre-orders are being accepted on the Rounder site.
The band consists of Abigail Washburn (banjo), KC Groves (mandolin, bass and guitar), Rayna Gellert (fiddle), and Kristin Andreassen (fiddle and guitar). All four ladies contribute to the group’s vocals.
You can find the g’Earls’ (as they put it) tour schedule on the band’s web site, along with a number of live performances on video.
