ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In this newest album, with guitar, cuatro, and mandolin, multi-instrumentalist Eric Thompson artfully “borrows” from a rich and varied collection of musical influences: Puerto Rican jibaro tunes, Delta blues, Cajun twosteps, jazzy Django Reinhardt, exotic Greek rhythms, bluegrass-Irish reels, plus a few genre-blenders including Eric's original Jibaro Hoedown, which combines mountain music of both Puerto Rico and the Appalachians.

The Kleptograss Band includes Jody Stecher (mandolin, guitar –Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band), Scott Nygaard (guitar – Crow Molly); Paul Shelasky (fiddle – Good Old Persons); Paul Knight (bass – Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band). Also appearing on some cuts is Suzy Thompson (fiddle and guitar), Eric's longtime musical partner.

“This is a damn good recording!”
- Arthur Stern

“It’s one of those rare recordings that's great to listen to over and over. It’s good at home and somehow even better in the car.” - Marty Somberg

“Awesome!” - Joel Savoy

"I listened to it sitting by my wood stove, [and] will do so again... and again... and again!"
-Brian Marshall
