energy coexists with old-time mountain soul. Spooky backwoods melodies
combine with hip, hard-hitting beats. No electricity! No drums! Meet Crooked
Still, the hot young alternative bluegrass group on a mission
to bend the boundaries of traditional music. The unlikely combination
of banjo, cello, and double-bass drives this low lonesome band, whose
captivating vocals and high-wire solos have enraptured audiences all
over the U.S. and Ireland since 2001. Aoife O'Donovan's
vocals, Rushad Eggleston's cello, and Gregory
Liszt's four-finger banjo combine with Corey DiMario's
pulsing bass lines to create an acoustic fusion that can rock trad
music without sacrificing the authenticity of the original sources.
Mike Harding of the BBC says of their new CD, SHAKEN BY A LOW SOUND:
"Absolutely wonderful! Not a weak track on the whole album!"
