Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time at Old Rock School March 9th

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Pud Marcum's Hangin'Larry Cordle is one of Bluegrass Music's most unique talents. He has written so many great songs, like "Murder On Music Row," and his voice is as pure as molasses on biscuits. (I guess that depends solely on the molasses one uses, huh?) Larry will be performing at the Old Rock School this March 9, 2012 in Valdese, North Carolina.

Chuck Dauphin in the Music News Nashville commented on Pud Marcum's Hangin' writing, "The veteran performer is back with a new album chock full of story songs. Some will put a smile on your face, such as "Shade Tree Mechanic," which is simplistically simple, yet very much entertaining. Also in that vein is the opener, "Justice For Willy," which very well could be the first Bluegrass song to mention the term DNA. Again, it's a story that you think is going to end one way, but the bad guys, or in this case bad woman, gets her comeuppance!

"Cordle has such a way with a story, and possibly the best example of that is, "Hello, My Name Is Coal", which is a song about the biggest industry in the Appalachians, but it's unique because it's from the perspective of the coal itself. "Uncle Bob Got Religion" is also a highlight, thanks to the combination of Richard Sterban's bass notes and the always superb playing of Randy Kohrs. The album closes strongly, as well, with the chilling "Sometimes A Man Takes A Drink" and "America, Where Have You Gone," which is some frank commentary that some listeners will agree with…..and others won't. But, I have a feeling that's not going to bother Cordle. He knows exactly who his audience is, and this album will be just to their liking!"
