The Barn Swallows proudly announce their debut CD!
"pretty difficult not to fall for this catchy little beauty......the word 'authentic' comes to mind, but not 'ancient'. ... music with a modern sensibility that seems quite consistent with contemporary 'freak folk' bands like Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers.... "
"Instrumental performance is delivered with skill and passion.... Harmonies in the chorus are to die for.... Draws reference from anachronistic forms of traditional roots oriented music (folk, bluegrass), but sounds wholly contemporary...."
"Wonderful stuff. I'm a fan!"
"Light, breezy, traditional and interesting.....This is a CD for a nice day, or when you wish it was.... This self-titled CD has fine playing, and especially good, all-original songwriting....they mix their guitar parts seamlessly... "
"This is a CD that brings an older country feel into today’s world, with expert production and string work."
February 14, 2011: We are very excited to announce that our debut full-length studio CD is now available! We are very pleased with it and think that you will be too. It features 12 of our best original songs including:
We think this CD really captures us at our best and accomplishes what we sent out to do with our music. In addition to showcasing our songwriting, vocals, harmonies, dobro, guitar, and mandolin, the album features the musical contributions from guests Paul Pluta on bass, Tom Montgomery on accordion, Michael Salsburg on violin and Brian Ritrovato on percussion. It is also graced by beautiful cover artwork and design by Sandy's daughter Sonia. Available now!
