Plugging A Good Musical Group.

Welcome! For my first post, I want to plug a musical group I stumbled upon. The group is Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch, and Fats Kaplin. I've seen them classified as Country in the Americana or Alternative Country sub-genres. I downloaded their album, Lost John Dean, last week from iTunes and have been playing it everyday. There isn't a bad song on the album, but I especially like "Heaven Now." "Postcard from Mexico" is also good, and "Lost John Dean" is a good bluegrass song along with "Mellow Down Easy." This last song is good to play when, as the song says, "when you really want to blow your top."
Some of their music is more country, others more bluegrass. What really impresses me about their music is the instrumentation. These guys are artists at heart. It is great! Check it out.
