Live: Crowd Around the Mic
'In mood and execution this record remindes me very much of some of my favorite albums growing up; Hot Rize, Red Clay Ramblers, Norman and Nancy Blake. Eclectic but consistently entertaining and sizzling with intensity as only great acoustic music can deliver, with an urgency and intimacy that I love.' - Michelle Shocked "(Wild Carrot's new) collection is a whirlwind of Roots music forms, touching on Bluegrass, Country, swinging Jazz, Modern Folk and Celtic music - the original songs stand up remarkably well against the well-chosen covers - with a consistently masterful grace (and) flawless four-part harmonies.' - Mike Breen, City Beat 'This is an album that is simultaneously lovely, clever, and swingy. Above all, it's not predictable and is easily the most exciting bluegrass album I've heard since the last Crooked Still release.' - LV, Off Center Reviews Bringing their award-winning, refreshing and engaging live show to CD, Wild Carrot's newest recording, Crowd Around the Mic, features Pam Temple and Spencer Funk in an intimate live concert setting with their Roots Band, Brenda Wolfersberger and Brandt Smith. Produced by fellow songwriter, Chris Collier, this recording showcases the joy and energy this quartet brings to their unique mix of American Roots music, allowing them to connect with an audience in an honest and energizing way.
