Rattle On The Stove Pipe – Through The Woods
This is a new album by my favourite old-time mountain music band. Pete Cooper plays in my Lodestar band , and he knows all his stuff, but he never shows off. So does Dave Arthur, who I’ve known for years. We used to swap babysitters when our kids were young so we could do gigs. They’re great to be on the road with, too. They’re good at crossword puzzles, don’t get drunk, and don’t break anything!
