Vancouver’s traditional bluegrass standard bearers, The Lonesome Town Painters, are poised to deliver their sophomore album, The Lonesome Town Painters Play & Sing Bluegrass Music. While the title pays homage to beloved albums of the genre’s golden era, much of the material on the new record is original, albeit written under the influence of The Stanley Brothers, Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe, The Johnson Mountain Boys, Vern Williams...
Angelo Eidse (guitar & vocals), Patrick Bartel (banjo & vocals), Jeremy Freeman (mandolin & vocals), and Fred Beach (bass & backing vocals), are joined on three tracks by touring and recording artist Isaac Callender, who has lent his fiddle prowess to a who’s who of bluegrass and folk music artists from John Reischman and Tony Trischka, to Tommy Emmanuel and Peter Rowan.
But it’s the original songs on The Lonesome Town Painters Play & Sing Bluegrass Music that demonstrate just how far these fellas have come in a relatively short time, developing their soaring harmonies, melodic instrumentation, and the pushing drive that has come to define their spirited performances.
Having met by way of late-night jam sessions at Vancouver’s ANZA Club and their mutual love of The Stanley Brothers, this hard-hitting quartet has been finding its audience in every festival stage, concert hall, pub and brewery that will have them. They can be heard regularly on Bluegrass Ramble, 91.3 KBCS in Seattle, In The Pines, Co-op Radio 100.5 and Pacific Pickin' CiTR 101.9 in Vancouver.
“The Lonesome Town Painters faithfully recreate the look and sound of classic bluegrass music. Gathered around a single microphone they bring the music of Bill Monroe and The Stanley Brothers to life with outstanding musicianship and performance.” – Pete Goodall, KBCS Bluegrass Ramble Show
“As one of the top bluegrass acts in the lower mainland the band not only have the sounds to transport you back in time, they also have the look and the drawl of southern gentlemen.Their original numbers reflected the humour of the band members, including songs about criminals from New West and Cheating in East Vancouver…neither of which, the band assured us, where autobiographical.” – fanzrus.com
