Tugboat to Hamburg
Stringband Tunes and Songs from the American south
This record features our full stringband with Mattias and Elizabeth on fiddles, Paul Kirby and Mattias on banjo. Hans-Hinrich on guitar and Alix on double bass. Paul and Hans-Hinrich sing lead while Mattias joins in on some choruses. Paul supplied some original lyrics on two of the tunes. The repertoire is from the southern Appalachians - with the exception of "Going up to Hamburg" from Mississippi. We recorded this in Oslo and close to the original Hamburg in Germany.
