Album Notes
Real conversation is the art of taking time to stop, listen and let it flow. In their third full-length release, The Conversation, Pete’s Posse invites you to listen in on a musical discussion that has developed over four years, four albums, and over 100,000 miles of touring.

Since 2014 folk veteran Pete Sutherland and his young partners Oliver Scanlon and Tristan Henderson have distilled their distinct sound and established themselves as a pioneering force in the Northeast’s dynamic roots music scene; this newest release, their most adventurous work yet, lays bare the reasons for that.

The album commences with an other-worldly intro which gives way to “The Brocca Set”; a full-bore explosive set of Irish fiddle tunes in a fast-paced arrangement.

The Posse’s restless creativity is as evident as ever and the songs on the album draw from a wide array of genres. “Don’t Let Me Go” could easily be a lost piece from the Everly Brothers or The Beatles, with its sweet chord progression and tight three-part harmonies.

“The Sap Ain’t Runnin’” laments the slow passing of the sugaring tradition in a changing climate. Carried by banjo, an insistent guitar riff, and the sorrowful voice of the viola, the song moves around the central line “Put away your buckets and taps, board up the sugarhouse door… this world is headed for a warmer time, and the sap ain’t a runnin’ no more.”

The heart-breaking beauty of “Up and Blow Away”, gives one pause and reflection on life, while “The Bunny Tree” kicks it into high gear, with a dance-floor-ready fusion of rock, funk and folk.

With each member being a multi-instrumentalist, the album is a brilliant musical tapestry with a tight weave. Through the sonic landscape you’ll hear fiddles, mandolin, guitars, jaw harp, keyboards, foot percussion, chiming vocal harmonies and even melodica!

The Conversation is a testament to the power that music has to make one stop in this busy world and consider the beauty all around. With no ego in the music, the album expresses the true heart of folk music: the love of the communal experience.
