Album Notes
"What you hold in your hand is a testament to the group, HogMaw! It was such a pleasure to work with such talented musicians. We all wanted to find something that would play to traditional bluegrass standards but also display HogMaw's strengths as a group.....So sit back and enjoy HogMaw!"- Dom Flemons- GRAMMY winner and founding member of The Carolina Chocolate Drops.

In the early spring of 2013, HogMaw teamed up with GRAMMY winner Dom Flemons to record an album of traditional bluegrass and old time music. After 4 marathon days working in the studio, what surfaced is a fun, heart felt, boot stompin' good time of an album that's sure to have something for everyone! The band and Dom worked really hard with engineer Ernie Tokay to try to capture the feel and sound of old bluegrass records while still maintaining the bands hard forged progressive edge. To add the excitement, "Ideal Proof" is also available on CLEAR VINYL which is fun for music lovers and serious record collectors alike!

With a strong desire to record things the old fashioned way, 95% of the album was recorded in a live setting and much of it through old ribbon mics. This really lent itself to the feel of the songs and truly makes this a one of a kind throwback to the roots of bluegrass and country music. Digging deep on song choice, Dom and the band really picked tunes that would showcase the bands exceptional musicianship but also a softer more stripped down sound that allows HogMaw to take listeners back to the good ol' days of acoustic music. Jaunty traditional songs like "Rabbit in a Log", "Cripple Creek" and "Deep Elum Blues" make you get up out of your seat and dance. While the slower tunes like "White House Blues" and the hauntingly beautiful "Pass Me Not" make you slow down to appreciate this fine selection of music. But one of the must hear tracks on this record has to be the riveting "Darlin' Corey" which Gene Shay, folk music icon and host of WXPN's The Folk Show, said "Thats the hottest version of Darlin' Corey I've ever heard!"
