Foghorn Stringband, Rattlesnake Tidal Wave

The Foghorn Stringband plays traditional mountain fiddle tunes and high-spirited Appalachian dance music. Featuring Portland's own local folk/bluegrass legend Caleb Klauder on mandolin, The Foghorn Stringband has translated bar-crowd popularity into a surprisingly active traditional-dance scene. "Foghorn is at the forefront of Portland's vibrant Old Time revival." - Willamette Week, Portland, OR "Hip or not, there's no getting around the fact that The Foghorn Stringband kicks major ass. All of these musicians are exceptional players, and "Rattlesnake Tidal Wave" hums along like a perfectly tuned engine. Did I mention it's a live recording, recorded in two days, with a single microphone? Did I also mention that this band began in a hung-over jam session during a folk festival in Idaho? I mean, how much more punk rock can you get?" - The Table Newspaper, Seattle, WA
