I should know a whole lot more about these guys. In fact, I should know something abut these guys but I don’t own a single recording. Until now.
Had a sniff around online but you seem to get pages and pages of ‘Buy your CD’s here’ crap and little genuine information.
I did come across this about the ‘Down the Old Plank Road’ release, a CD from 2002 that (being a fusion/crossover with both sides of Nashville) seems right up my alley, Matron – but, as a band, they’ve been knocking stuff out for 30-35 years . . .
Given that I’m into what seems to be called ‘alt.country’ and (other/deeper) roots music in general, is ’Down the Old Plank Road’ as good a place as any to start with The Chieftains?
What else might I get at the same time ? What about background info ?
