The Red Clay Ramblers
The Red Clay Ramblers are one of the most bona fide folk revival bands of the stringed persuasion. They excel at playing old-timey Appalachian folk, as well as their own interpretation of porch music. Enthusiasts of this genre consider The Red Clay Ramblers to be one of the finest folk revival bands of the 20th century, and many music journalists compare their rustic authenticity and passion for musical history to that of The Band. They reached a wider audience outside the folk community with their musical score for Sam Shepard's play, A Lie of the Mind.
