ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anti-folkers The Foghorns began in 2001 with Bart Cameron bringing songs written in Wisconsin to Brooklyn New York for
various strange performances, mainly with the help of Brooklyn bluegrass band The Cobble Hillbillies. The band released two
albums in New York. When Bart moved to Iceland in 2003 as a Fulbright Fellow, he revamped the band and toured Iceland using the moniker.

In Iceland, Bart released a bucket and guitar folk album, So Sober. The band, still with bucket percussion, performed across Iceland including performing twice at Iceland Airwaves, at Innipukinn, and more than a 100 other performances across the island.

In 2006, Bart moved to Seattle, Washington. The Foghorns were eventually reformed. With Katie and Rich Quigley, they
recorded "A Diamond as Big as the Motel Six" in 2009. The tour that supported that CD took the band to Iceland, England, Scotland, Denmark and Sweden, along with a 42-stop cross country US tour.

In 2011, The Foghorns released their seventh full length CD, and their first full-length LP on vinyl. Featuring Bart Cameron, Jason Kopec (a converted taiko drummer performing on pots, pans, and sometimes drums), and accordionist/ pianist Peter Colclasure, along with a number of other Seattle-based musicians. The reviews for that are as follows:

From Reverb Magazine, author Chris Kornelius (blogs.seattleweekly.com)
“Pig is one of the most substantially listenable local albums of the year; easy to access, and hard to put down. It's soothing and comforting in the right ways, without being excessive or cheap. Its subtleties - hints of organ and accordion -- are smooth, but smart. Easy listening doesn't have to mean easily forgotten.”

From Ball of Wax, author Jon Rooney (www.ballofwax.org)
“Get a little closer and the songs on To the Stars on the Wings of a Pig, the band’s latest LP, reveal themselves to be funny, bitter little laments about the hell that is other people and, quite frankly, ourselves. Despite the context clues of traditional instrumentation and standard folk song structures, the Foghorns craft savvy, biting reproaches more in line with Dylan’s “Positively Fourth Street” or Lou Reed’s Sally Can’t Dance than a knee-slapping hootenanny... To the Stars on the Wings of a Pig is a quietly stunning piece of work and, on beautiful blue vinyl, an album worth having on hand for whenever the mood strikes.”

"Ain't I a Man" is their first single since the 2011 release of "TO the Stars..."
