Lonesome Shack “Past the Ditch” – Listen

Lonesome Shack came together in Seattle before the trio relocated to London where they have been busy pulling together an album, ‘Desert Dreams‘, which will be out in March on a variety of formats including a strictly limited vinyl pressing.  There’s a lot in their music, as ‘Past the Ditch‘ demonstrates – a pinch of folk – guitarist Ben Todd wisely spent time transposing old banjo tunes to his finger picking style – a sprinkle of country blues and a swirl of Canned Heat boogie.

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?
