Shawangunk Wine Trail, exploring New York wine and beer, I listened to The Farewell Drifters soon to be released CD, Tomorrow Forever. Both the wine trail and music were new territory, musically because this is less a traditional bluegrass effort that I have become accustomed to by the band and more a refined acoustic pop CD. Normally I would turn away, but the bands vocal harmonies are as soothing as seeing the snow covered Shawangunk mountains. Just listen to Brother - my favorite track - that and Bring 'em Back Around - the most rockn' song of the release. The songs are all original, written by Joshua Britt and Zach Bevill (Clayton Britt and Dean Marold round out the band), and is a nice listen, perfect for country roads. Plus it's nice to heard guest fiddler Eamon McLoughlin again. Looking forward to seeing the band January 28th at Gypsy Sally's in Washington DC. Pair with Brimstone Hill Winery or Baldwin Vineyards Chardonnay.
