There’s a sweet spot right at the intersection of traditional country, bluegrass, and old time music. There you’ll find your grandpappy rocking on his front porch, sipping sweet tea, telling stories. You’ll find your mawmaw at the back door, ringing the dinner bell to call you up from the lower pasture. You’ll find your high school sweetheart in her yellow summer dress, making eyes at you from across the room at the church social potluck. And you’ll find Reeb Willms and Caleb Klauder standing in the corner, playing the hell out of guitar and mandolin, singing their hearts out in perfect harmony.
Oh Do You Remember, the new release from one half of Foghorn Stringband, is an engaging collection of long-lost songs the two learned from friends and their favorite artists. Caleb plays lead guitar and mandolin, while Reeb lays down a foundation on guitar, as their intertwining voices take the listener on a sentimental journey through the early days of country music. Did I mention that the vintage style CD packaging (design by Peggy Pfenninger, printed by Stumptown Printers) is lovely? It is. Recommended!
