Samples, Mary-Lou and Lonesome Day !
For several years, we have been working with Lonesome Day on folk and traditional country songs that we like to play beside the usual Mary-Lou trio songs (french original songs) and Hoboes (Appalachian music, folk et country blues as a duet). We play american songs we love in this 5 musicians new concept.
The contribution of Jean-Paul Raffin and Marion Thébault is great. With the Mary-Lou trio, violon, washboard, guitares, piano, they bring mandoline, dobro, lap steel, harmonica, guitar, allowing us to have on stage all the instruments of the folk and americana music (except banjo banjo).
We play songs of the songwriters and musicians we love : Johnny Cash, Dan Fogelberg, Johnny Lee, Bob Wills, Ricky Skaggs, Lee Hazelwood and many more. We were in our studio these last weeks to record 4 titles to convince the organizers, the festivals and the associations. Here are these 4 samples. Maybe one day they'll be on a record, we'll see.
Before that, we'll record a new Mary-Lou cd, but that's another story.
We hope you'll like these songs. Tell us what you think, it's important for us to hear from you.
Since 2008, CD Baby sells our music all over the world. You can buy or download most of the songs. Even the CD's that are not on sale anymore can be downloaded. And you can listen to samples of all the titles ! Enjoy...
