Americana Music: South Rome…Ga.

I got invited to spend some time at a recording session in an old home in south Rome, GA.  The Groundhawgs are a couple of brothers, Clark and Clayton, along with their Sis, Julie.  They’re a bunch of talented folks that have attracted the likes of Mike Compton and David Long.

Mike Compton will continue touring with Elvis Costello in June.  Mike is the undisputed expert on Bill Monroe’s music and style.  It’s clear that Mike finds joy in keeping in touch with the basics of Americana Music.

The results of the session will be a five song EP.  Perhaps I’ll get to hear it soon.
