Singer, pseudo beatnik, musician (mandolin, mandocello, banjo, autoharp, dulcimer, harmonica, flute, penny whistle and kazoo!) and writer of songs -- some humorous, some not (he wrote or co-wrote all 15 of the album's 16 songs -- including 'Horsefly from Hell,' 'Frustrated,' the baby boomer themed 'Slow Children,' the middle-eastern influenced 'Mutant Dandelion'; the album's one non-original is a cover the Yardbirds' 'Over Under Sideways Down') -- this is Dave Kruth. How to classify him? 'Folk music' kind of covers it -- but not 'folk' as Woody Guthrie might have defined it, nor as it was conceived by the singer/songwriter school as typified by James Taylor or Carly Simon. This is Dave Kruth music -- personal, idiosyncratic, offbeat -- listen and come up with your own definition.
