Description

Like a jukebox of old 78 records, The Ventucky String Band is reminiscent of a time when Jazz bands featured banjo, and Bluegrass music was as novel as the arrival of television. The Band's debut Vinyl LP on Philville Records is an eerie and beautiful ride through the storied past of California--from deadly shipwrecks in the 1850's to mysterious train-derailments and deals with the Devil-- this album is as much about storytelling as it is about lush instrumentals and haunting melodies of heartbreak and redemption. With aesthetic touches of Celtic music, zydeco, bluegrass, and authentic country, this album is a sonic mixture of true Americana--a veritable melting pot of world music filtered through the dusty back-roads of American string band music. As for the name?--Where some have tried to diminish Ventura California as quot;Ventucky,quot; this band sees their name not as a veiled jab at Bluegrass music or the city that brought them together- but instead as a tribute to the music and culture of the farmers, roustabouts, and cattlemen that helped grow the city during the early days of big-oil and agriculture in California.
