. . . a solid collection of original folk songs, recorded in a very raw style with guitar, harmonica and voice, in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Ramblin' Jack Elliot. listen for some great picking, clever lyrics and classic harmonica riffs. all delivered with the energy you need to get people to hear you out on the streets, with plenty of subtlety as well.
