Dear Adam (Ye Dude Who Mailed Me About This Bit),
This is good. I like it. I cannot tell you why exactly, because it doesn’t scream folk and it’s not bluegrass but I guess that just speaks to how rad music can be. It doesn’t have to be your thing and your urge can be to turn it off, lower that volume when you realize that it’s not typically up your alley. But then, it just sort of stays on. Maybe it’s the drum or the sound of history you mention, but it’s something. This is a lesson. ‘Dusty folk’ is still folk. And I like folk, especially when it’s a little dirty.
You should keep doing what you do and maybe release an album. I’d buy it.
