ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sheesham and Lotus play old-time, ragtime, and hokum blues on all old-time instruments of antiquated and more considerate times.
This record is an offering from Sheesham and Lotus that is all instrumental, all fiddle and banjo, all of the time. One exception being Hickory Jack which features Lotus Wight on jaw harp. Nods to the Hammons family, John Salyer and Pete Sutherland as well as Bruce Green and Clyde Davenport.
"...Sheesham and Lotus play old-time music as if born doing it..."
Mitch Podolack
"...Crow's fiddling is a crackerjack drone perfectly mixed with the snappy cluck of Lotus' five-string clawhammer tour de force..."
Sam Allison
