Among the Oak and Ash

The Byrds + Fairport Convention + the 21st Century = alt folk rock. Not an original song in the bunch - in fact, it includes some of the oldest music around. In fact, I think pretty much all of the songs are somewhere in Roger McGuinn's Folk Den. But Roger never made those songs sound like this. I think this young duo, "with a pair of highly regarded Nashville-based players, bassist Brian Harrison (Shelby Lynne) and drummer Bryan Owings (Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin)," has created a knockout debut album - released this past Tuesday (If you don't listen to anything else, check out "All the Pretty Little Horses"):
