GUEST,Den Is Steve Earl folk (38) RE: Is Steve Earl folk 20 Jul 00


Some more thoughts:

From an Interview with Bob Gulla CD Now

He's also writing music at a vicious rate and within a number of new genres: first, the heartwarming, old-time folk aura of Train a Comin',

From the man himself:

Yeah, I'm doing a TV special in Dublin, playing with [Celtic accordionist] Sharon Shannon and Donal Lunny. Sharon and I are also getting ready to make a record together.There's a single coming out on her new album, which is a song I wrote. We may release some of the stuff we'll record together as an EP, probably some time next year.

From music critic Michael McCall talking about the new release "mountain,"

"But the brash singer-songwriter has flaunted his ability to excel at a variety of musical styles before, and his new album proves that he can be as substantial at doctrinaire mountain music as he is at redneck rock, modern country or unfettered folk. It's not his best work, but like his previous all-acoustic effort, Train A' Comin', it allows him to delve into his folk-music roots while molding the form to fit his purposes and personality".

For what its worth Den
