ASOldBeefStringbandCDRideHome.jpgThe Old Beef Stringband based in Halifax/mi'kma'ki,

Nova Scotia released their debut EP on May 10, 2024

The band is an acoustic old-time trio and their music

walks the line between celtic and country music.

They are: Ellen Kearney, vocls, guitar, mandolin

Amy Lounder, fiddle, vocals-Dane George, mandolin,

banjo, vocals , step dance.

The EP features a small but mighty selection of songs

and tunes that range from the bluegrass-inspired

The Love You Gave to the poetic folk sound of

Ride Home. An original fiddle tune entitled Cynthia

is included. Another song entitled Hot Sausage is a

new take on Asa Martin's old-time country-blues

song. The American stringband rendition of the

traditional song entitled Gospel Plough (featuring

percussive dance accompaniment!!) is included as well

.The 5 tracks are as follows:

Ride Home - Cynthia - Hot Sausage Mama - Gospel Plough

The Love You Give

Atlantic Seabreeze just received this EP and very

impressed with it's music. A five star out of 5 stars is

given to the EP and will be a welcome to all music lovers
