'Confluence' was released in September of 2008. The album was produced by Chris Henry (Murphy Method) and recorded at the band's home in Paducah, Kentucky. The album once again features the artwork & design of Darin Shock, and contains all new original material written by Bawn in the Mash. A confluence is defined as the flowing together of two or more streams. With producer Chris Henry at the helm, Bawn in the Mash take listeners on a trip down distributary into uncharted waters, channeling the wavelengths & frequencies of Western Kentucky. According to a review by the Nashville Scene's D. Patrick Rodgers, 'Bawn in the Mash bridge the rarely traversed gap between bluegrass and rock 'n' roll with the effortlessness of careful students of both.'
