#197 The Coal Town Rounders – Foggy Mountain Top

Sounding like they’re from deepest darkest Appalachia but actually hailing from the rough-hewn industry of Pennsylvania’s ‘Electric City’ Scranton come the Coal Town Rounders. And yes, while Scranton was founded first on its coal mining, this music will have you thinking of the mines of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee as the band produce a bluegrass sound that feels fully authentic. Authentic enough to earn opening slots with the likes of Emmylou Harris and the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and to catch our ears. If they catch yours too, you can nab a free download of Foggy Mountain Top here.
