Southern Tenant Folk Union
This article is from 2008.
The proliferation of quality bluegrass acts in the UK is evidence that geography is not a barrier to divining the musical spirit of the Appalachian mountains. This London-based six-piece have just released their second album Revivals, Rituals and Union Songs which is underpinned by the lilting tones of Oliver Talkes and the finely crafted banjo playing of Pat McGarvey. Roots music that knows few boundaries.
