ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Laurel Premo, Michael Beauchamp, Sam Cooper, and Sam Herman form the stringband quartet known as BOWHUNTER. With twin fiddles, banjo, and guitar, the group renders old time tunes to fuel a traditional dance floor frenzy. Their debut recording, "The Right Hands 'Round," features the fiery traditional and original fiddle tunes that the band is known for at square dances, but also includes a few traditional ballads with sweet harmony singing. The inclusion of a few off-the-cuff jokes and laughter pulls the listener into the intimate circle of the fun-loving four piece string band.

The Right Hands ‘Round calls to mind a sum greater than its parts. From a right hand star on the dance floor, to the rhythmic combination that our right hands strike into our instruments, to simply having the right team for the job, everything is better with friends.
