Sanctified Grumblers - No Lie
Living in the Chicago area, I have had the pleasure of hearing Sanctified Grumblers' old-time delta blues/jazz/jugg band/Old New Orleans rhythms live, unamplified, in small, quaint taverns. Its like a magnificent trip in a time machine, yet these are original songs! And the musicianship is superb, not surprising since members Rick Sherry and Eric Noden are both instructors at the prestigious Old Town School of Folk. I dare you to listen to "Rambin' Ramblin', Ramblin" and not feel happy.
