Off My Lawn

by Old Man Kelly

The sound of Old Man Kelly comes broadly from the early days of American roots music: when bluesmen sang from front porches on hot afternoons; when swing bands played dances in speakeasies late into the night.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American Roots Music With Guts

The sound of Old Man Kelly comes broadly from the early days of American roots music: when bluesmen sang from front porches on hot afternoons; when swing bands played dances in speakeasies late into the night; when being an American troubadour was a trade. Since the 2013 release of Songs, Stories, Shanties and Shenanigans, Old Man Kelly has gigged relentlessly, bringing his vintage sound to over 300 swing dances, festivals and honky-tonks throughout the central Appalachian mountains.

The 2016 release of Off My Lawn is the recorded product of a band sharpened by the time spent in those trenches - Old Man Kelly and the Streetsweepers. Featuring Matt Labarge on honky-tonk piano, Chris Printz on upright bass, and Nathan Bowles on drums, songs like “Exitville”, “My Next-Exgirlfriend”, “Milk Cow Blues” and “Knock Her Up” are tailor-made for rockabilly swing dancing in late-night establishments. “The Murder of Mir Imad” and “Cool Rag” add Willis Greenstreet on clarinet, seasoning the gumbo with a Dixieland vibe. Old Man Kelly gives respect to his roots in old-time music on the traditional ballad “Wild Bill Jones” and on the original composition “Louisiana Dirt”, featuring the incomparable flatfoot dancing of Jen Barton.

Brazenly original and yet familiar-sounding, Off My Lawn brings the dance hall to your living room. Move the furniture, roll up the rug, and play it loud.
