NEW ALBUM TRASHGRASS OUT NOVEMBER 2
Energized from their stellar performances at some of the top music festivals in the east, including All Good, Terrapin Hill Music Festival, Appalachian Uprising, Shoefest, and their own festival, Snugglefest, Cincinnati, OH’s Rumpke Mountain Boys much anticipated sophomore album Trashgrass is set for release on November 2.
Recorded live at a private party at Stonedbarry Hill, then carefully mixed over the past year at Soap Floats recording studio in Cincinnati (a la “Live Dead”), Trashgrass is the Rumpke Mountain Boy’s first release since the departure of bassist Travis Gates and addition of Memphis-bred upright bassist JD Westmoreland. Consisting of accomplished mandolin player Ben Gourley, Adam Copeland on acoustic guitar, Jason “Wolfie” Wolf on banjo, and Westmoreland on upright bass, Rumpke’s sound is refreshingly unique, drawing on influences such as the Grateful Dead, Ralph Stanley, Tom Waits, and Jimmy Cliff.
The Rumpke Mountain Boys are headed a regional tour in support of the new album, and will be hosting a CD release parties in the weeks following the November 2 release date at venues listed below.
