Yeeeeha! We can't begin to tell you how excited we are and how much fun we had making a clip for our latest single, CUMBERLAND GAP, that was released this morning! It's available for sale on itunes, and you can Click here to view on Youtube ...
We're heading to the good ole US of A next week and while we're there we'll journey through Appalachia, the southern states and the Cumberland Gap gathering more knowledge and inspiration for this old time trad folk that we're so passionate about!
The Cumberland Gap was a highly traveled mountain pass in the late 1700’s by migrants heading west and the Union and Confederate armies battled for a year to take control of the gap during the Civil War. It became a popular folk song in the 1800’s. We upped the tempo of the song to create a feeling of movement through the mountain. Being the opening track off our 3rd studio release, Down Foggy Mountain, it sets a feel and opens a space for the rest of the album.
Yeeeeeeeeeha! Goats are flying all over the Sunshine State next month :) We'll post you some pics from the TIP, but then again, you could tag along!!! Come on - this year is PRIME for a 4WD adventure to the top of Australia ... if you'd prefer to stay a little less dusty, we'll see you in Townsville for Palm Creek Folk Fest, or at our Bne/Gold Coast shows and festivals.
