Where Mockingbirds Roam
'Where Mockingbirds Roam' is a collection of traditional songs drawing from the folk, blues and old time country music genres. These songs have been rearranged melodically and lyrically so that they are at once modern and faithful to the rich traditions that created them. The album boasts many styles from the moody slave spiritual 'Motherless Child' to the wistful storytelling of 'Old Joe's Barroom' to the horse-galloping of 'Lily of The West.' Complete with a few guest musicians of note, this record is the sound of three musicians scratching through the old time sound to produce a collection of songs that reveal the wide and varied beauty of traditional folk music. * * * * * * * * * * Who are The Mutineers? The Mutineers play traditional folk, blues and old-time country music. With all of the the necessary ingredients (guitar, mandolin, acoustic bass, dobro, banjo) the songs are adapted and arranged in ways that are at once traditional and unique. The songs are selected, arranged and sung by Stuart MacDonald, who has been collecting, learning, and arranging traditional folk music for years. He is joined by multi-talented stand-up acoustic bassist and harmony singer Rod Pervier. Rod has a wealth of musical experience and is an accomplished musician. Dick Hodges rounds out the trio with tasteful mandolin, dobro and lead guitar picking. Having played in a wide variety of bands previously, Dick lends his knowledge & varied musical background. * * * * * * * * * *.
