#119 Winter Mountain – Shed A Little Light

Some people think folk music is all men with beards playing acoustic guitars and clapping. These people are idiots, but just to be on the safe side, don’t show them ‘Shed A Little Light’ by Winter Mountain, which is two men with beards playing acoustic guitars and clapping. Those men are Joseph Francis and Martin Smyth, an Englishman and an Irishman who improbably met on a train from Chicago to Memphis and bonded over their love of The Band, Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. You can certainly pick out some of those influences of Shed A Little Light, taken from their EP Find, Follow, which was released last month.
