Love Is Everything
The Jethros comprise Homer Jethro (Tom Allen) on guitar, banjo, and vocals; Rufus Jethro (Rick Smith) on trumpet, trombone, and vocals, Chester Jethro (Jeremy Houle) on bass, and Boney Jethro (Jonathan Danforth) on fiddle, bones, and other percussion. This unusual lineup, combined with the catchy, danceable, and thought-provoking songs of Allen and Smith, have helped the Jethros become a sought-after and well-recognized act in SouthCoast contemporary folk music. Since the release of their first album, Muffins and Fries, fans have been pressing them for another recording reflecting the current roster of musicians and their ever-expanding songlist. Love Is Everything reflects the musical fingerprint that listeners have come to love, a sound that is polished without losing the energy of their live shows, and the obvious joy that The Jethros have in bringing their music to others.
