CD review in The Old-Time Herald

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Well, imagine my pleasure on receiving the June-July issue of The Old-Time Herald and finding this review of my CD, Sings Songs for the Masses, by Pete Peterson:

"When you live far away from most other musicians, say on Crete, you will probably develop your own styles and write your own songs after wearing out all the recordings you brought with you. On this album, the artist composed about half the songs and tunes; the rest are traditional. His voice is distinctive, sounding like an old blues singer, filtered through a rock musician such as Eddie Vedder. The banjo playing is solid clawhammer with a light, sure touch. Not traditional old-time music as I know it, but eclectic and distinctive."

You can get the CD from www.hunterrobertson.com, or from CD Baby or County Sales (their catalog number is HUNTER-2008), or, you can download it from iTunes.

My Instruments:
Flathead Gibson (my father got an old pot years ago and built a neck for it. It has no resonator), an S.S. Stewart and a Maya Masterclone turned into a thumpy gutbucket. A couple of homemade instruments: a fretless longneck with a Profitt-like head strung with gut, a fretless Danish cookie tin banjo. I just got a plastic Harmony. For what it cost and what it's made of, it's astonishingly good.
