Well, we like to think of the midweek instrumental slot as being an opportunity to take a mindful respite from the onslaught of the world.  “No Words Just Music!” is the slogan.  However, it’s only fair that we warn y’all that ‘Up In Bigfoot Country’ is not exactly shy and retiring and introspective – this is music to have you up and bopping in an approved Bluegrass manner.  But no line dancing y’hear, that’d be anathema.

Andy Hall of the Infamous Stringdusters is releasing an album of Bluegrass instrumentals on June 23rd, it’s called ‘Squareneck Soul.‘  It’s his first solo release for some fifteen years, and features an array of talented musicians alongside Andy Hall – on this song you’ll hear Sierra Hull (mandolin), Bryan Sutton (guitar), Wes Corbett (banjo), and Travis Book (bass).

Hall is rightly pleased with the new music saying “‘Squareneck Soul’ is truly a project from my heart and my soul. A slide guitar record 15 years in the making. It’s a collection of original instrumental tunes designed as a template for bluegrass improvisation.  I think of it as a musical playground for some world-class pickers!

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
