Double Fiddle Old-Time CD Project-David Bragger & Susan Platz

We surpassed our goal! We are now in the process of assembling the booklet and creating the artwork! Thank you to all of our supporters and backers!

David Bragger & Susan Platz are recording the 1st double fiddle CD in old-time music! Drawing from many inspirations such as Dan Gellert & Brad Leftwich, Rafe & Clelia Stefanini, Spencer & Rains, Joel Savoy & Linzay Young and Dennis McGee & Sady Courville, the Bragger & Platz duo decided to make this album. They bring the rich rhythms and harmonies, often found in Cajun fiddling, to some rare and classic tunes from the old-time fiddle canon. They are asking for help from the old-time music community to make it happen.

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day shining gold standard for American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over a decade of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of old-time musicians following their lead. They’ve been steadily proving that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.

The music of The Foghorn Stringband revolves around four master musicians: Portland, Oregon-based Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) and Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar), and Yukon-based Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) and Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo). Each member of The Foghorn Stringband comes not only from a different part of the American roots music spectrum, but leads the pack in their field as well. Caleb Klauder’s wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as by his upbringing in Washington State. Also from Washington, Reeb Willms grew up in the state’s Eastern farmlands singing hard-bitten honky-tonk with her family. Nadine Landry’s roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Québec, but she cut her teeth as one of the best bluegrass bassists in Western Canada. Minnesotan Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind, simply put, is one of the best old-time fiddlers of his generation and has a voice that sounds like it’s coming from an old 78.

Onstage, The Foghorn Stringband gather around one microphone, balancing their music on the fly, and playing with an intense, fiery abandon.

To Foghorn, this music is as relevant today as it was a century ago. They see themselves not as revivalists, but as curators and ardent fans, and their music is a celebration of these roots. From their origins in Portland Oregon’s underground roots music scene in the late 90s and early 00s, when members of today’s hot bands like The Decemberists and Blind Pilot were gathering to explore the roots of American folk music, The Foghorn Stringband have spread the old-time string band gospel all over the world. Along the way, they’ve brought in influences and inspirations from their many travels and late-night jam sessions. Old-time square dance tunes now rub shoulders with Cajun waltzes, vintage honky-tonk songs, and pre-bluegrass picking. This is the kind of bubbling musical brew which first intoxicated the American mainstream in the day.

Foghorn Stringband — Grigsby’s Hornpipe

On January 19th 2017, Foghorn Stringband recorded several pieces for a secret project that David Bragger and the Tiki Parlour are producing.

In celebration of Foghorn’s return to Los Angeles for another Tiki Parlour-hosted concert (September 18th, 2017), we decided to release one of the videos.

It’s Eck Robertson’s “Grigsby’s Hornpipe.”

It’s just too dang good. Cheers!
