Tucker Mountain Band – Tucker Mountain Band

By Charlie Englar

Old-school, Appalachia-style, structured and straightforward: Just the way the forefathers of bluegrass would have it. On Tucker Mountain Band, TMB uses a majority of bouncy, banjo-driven tunes, highlighted with group harmonies and sing-songy lyrics. It’s quite remarkable that all except one of the lifetime musicians in TMB had never played bluegrass before the group was formed in 2007. The music created on Tucker Mountain Band is solid considering the group’s relatively short time making bluegrass together. As a whole, this album will either appeal to you or repel you – there is no middle ground with this musical style. It’s good music made by talented musicians, but stripped-down, nuts and bolts bluegrass can be hit or miss.
