. . . imagine Charlie Patton jamming with the Carter Family on acid. . . .' --Paul Rishell 'The Tarbox Ramblers sound like they crawled out of the Delta with their instruments in tow after being frozen for 100 years. Their honest vocals and sweet grooves propel this CD from track to track.' --Ken Coomer, Wilco 'They take forgotten music and breathe a freshness into it that lights up the room, causing folks to take a collective leave of their senses. . . .' --Steve Morse, The Boston Globe With their self-titled debut, the Tarbox Ramblers have taken the blues, hillbilly and gospel music of the American South and come up with something entirely new: rocking music that is celebratory, soulful and haunting -- a sound that Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe calls 'intoxicatingly original.' The Tarbox Ramblers have built a large and faithful following over the past several years, with weekly residencies at two of Boston's most popular clubs. Tarbox Ramblers, a collection of public domain obscurities, folk favorites drastically reinvented, and seething originals, has the exact unclassifiable fire that has made Tarbox gigs in Boston wild, packed affairs. Featured guests at the Tarbox Ramblers shows have included members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the legendary Jim Kweskin (of Jim Kweskin's Jug Band fame), acclaimed blues-roots guitarist Paul Rishell and folk perennial 'Spider' John Koerner (of the influential and beloved '60s trio, Koerner, Ray & Glover). The Ramblers recently performed at a benefit performance in Boston with the J. Geils Band. Produced by Chris Rival.
