Soggy Bottom Boys!

That is a funny name for a band isn’t it?

If you have watched the movie ‘O Brother Where Art Thou’ you know what band I am talking about. The one with George Clooney as the lead singer.

The real voice of singing-George in the movie is Dan Tyminski who says during a concert that when he told his wife that he was going to be George Clooney’s voice-over she asked him what a voice-over was. He told her that she would see George Clooney’s face, but when he sang it would be his voice coming out. His wife said to him, “Oh Dan, that is my fantasy!”.

The real name of this band is called ‘Alison Krauss & Union Station’ and they are awesome. The sound that comes out of Alison is incredible and the band is made up of musicians…the perfect kind of musicians. If you like a bit of mandolin, bass, violin, harmonies, banjo, and the dobro – you will love these guys!

My dad introduced us to this band a while back and we can’t stop listening to them.

    I really like this music. It has a nice sound to it with all those instruments. Bluegrass is not normally my style, but this is really good. Thank you for sharing.

    I grew up with BlueGrass mountain music. My parents always played it in the house and us kids would dance around the livingroom like crazy monkeys. Something about this type of music just makes you want to move šŸ™‚
