This ep was recorded at Electric Eye Studios in Pittsburgh, PA. Instrumentation includes guitar, mandolin, bass, pedal steel guitar, baritone guitar and percussion. My rich baritone voice is complimented by my daughters clear sweet soprano. The lyrics are intelligent and poetic. The songs include The Ballad of Old Mossback, a bluegrass sounding celebration of a legendary muskellunge, Falling Down, a lament for the rural heroin epidemic, I Don't Think So, a tribute to man's best friend, and Don't Ask Questions, a condemnation of the facist corporate state.
