ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Big Hungry Joe is a new danish band playing american folk music in the style named Old-time music. This is not the polished folk music that were played in coffee shops and campuses in the 60's and 70's. On the contrary it is folk music which is solidly entangled in the roots of the centuries old folk music tradition of the Appalachians.
It is lively instrumental tunes, which can tempt the listener to dance 'till dawn, go rabbit hunting and drink moonshine whiskey. It is songs about railroads, women, gambling, murder, moonshine and various barnyard animals.
Big Hungry Joe presents this type of music as it was intended. It is not wrapped up in modern experiments or new interpretations. Nor is it treated like a curiosity or some ancient kitsch from bygone days. It is rather presented with respect for tradition and with an energy worthy of the year 2008.
Lasse Høi plays lead melody on the energetic fiddle tunes on harmonica in a quality rarely heard. He sings harmonies too and lead on the last song on the CD. Jesper Deleuran is Big Hungry Joe’s father figure and does most of the singing, and play an authentic, foot tapping flat picking guitar. Tobias Enevoldsen helps out with backup vocals and plays a fine traditional clawhammer banjo worthy of any mountain side. Last but not least. Mathias Enevoldsen lays a solid bottom on double-bass.
