Live at the Barns--The Legendary Wolf Trap 1
- Artist: The Grandsons
- Format: CD
- Release Date:3/26/2002
A fan aptly described The Grandsons' exuberant sound as 'American music in a blender with the lid off.' The more prominent elements in this eclectic whirlpool are New Orleans rhythm and blues, rockabilly, swing and country two steps. The Grandsons bring with them a pawn shop of instruments. Vocalist-guitarist-trumpeter Alan MacEwen charms audiences with his sly wit and winsome original songs; DC blues veteran Matthew Sedgley locks in the groove on drums and percussion. Saxophonist Chris Watling puts out a sound so meaty and memorable that he is in demand all over as a guest artist and session player. LIVE AT THE BARNS, THE LEGENDARY WOLF TRAP RECORDINGS, Volume 1 Recorded live, in concert, at the Barns of Wolf Trap on May 5, 2001, the Grandsons fourth CD will be available starting March 17, 2002, appropriately enough, at the Barns of Wolf Trap. This live CD contains 15 songs never before released--over 60 minutes of music. The songs were chosen from the Grandsons vast roots rock repertoire, and include favorites such as 'One Mint Julep,' 'Don't Let Go,' 'Scotch and Soda,' 'Would You,' 'Jump In The Line,' 'Last Meal,' 'Shoorah Shoorah' and many more.
