Weather and Water - The Greencards

The Greencards new album (above) is due to be released on the morrow... I just heard them for the first in the past week. In case you didn't know they've been touring with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. Musically (and perhaps lyrically) they are similiar to Nickel Creek (they make the comparison themselves) but vocally I find them quite different. The group consists of Eamon McLoughlin on fiddle, Kym Warner (mandolinist) and Carol Young with bass. I believe Kym and Carol (both Australians) cover most of the vocals...

You can listen to the entire album on or...

Interviews and several songs played at FolkAlley studios in NE Ohio can be found on FolkAlley Extras.

Last but not least...The Greencards website.
