Southbound Mule: Live from the Barn - a few choice cuts...
all files are MP3. Recorded live, so ignore
the barking dogs, trains, wrong notes, etc.
Please feel free to keep them to yourself. We're very sensitive.
Southbound Mule pulls its music from the broad spectrum of traditional
music - from old-timey to newgrass - but we focus mostly on the
old standards and the best of the new favorites. We use lots of
two- and three-part harmonies, and even the odd five-part, just
to keep things dangerous.
We've put together a NEW CD to help us book some gigs and raise
gas money for the Mule Train (Joe's afraid of those fancy automobiles,
so we have our own fancy Pullman car to take us where we need to
be. If your town doesn't have a train depot, first-class plane tickets
will be accepted).
"Southbound Mule: Live from the Barn" - which
was recorded live from Darrel's living room, which has a certain
barn-like ambience, but with much nicer furniture, big-screen TV,
and carpet instead of hay.
Below is a sample play
list from a typical 2-hour set. We've got many more songs under
our collective and expanding belts, and we can take requests. "Get
off the stage, you hacks!" does not count as a request.
