Akron, Ohio's hot, harmonizing string band welcomes you to kick back on your favorite porch some Saturday night and wrap your ears around 65 minutes of non-stop old-timey folk music bliss, from the first ferocious shuffle of Wild Rose of the Mountain to the five-part vocal fireworks of Mole in the Ground, from the irresistible lilting banjo of Colours to the exquisite high harmonies of Black-eyed Susie. The Brick Road Ramblers -- named for Akron's 100-year-old red-bricked avenues -- serve up a blend of high octane old-time favorites and contemporary folk classics with a banjo-driven, bass-pulsing backwoods sound that has thrilled festival crowds of all ages since 1996. Featuring five-string and tenor banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, dobro, stand-up bass, piano and clarinet, Porch Music celebrates joyous, foot-stomping mountain tunes; blues; 60s folk; and 1930s standards -- all performed in grand, jubilant style by the five-member Ramblers. Lace up your steel-toed clogging shoes and cut loose. It's a CD you will want to play -- and sing along to -- again and again.
