FROM THE MORGAN HOTEL IN TEMPLE BAR
PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
After 5 years on the road, 4 albums under their belt and multiple international tours, the Water Tower Bucket Boys have been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. They have performed on the BBC, NPR, and RTE. They have shared the stage with acts like Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Wilco, The Red Stick Ramblers, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three, and Woody Pines. Their all original sound is infectious and has spread far and wide to audiences of all ages and walks of life. Based in Portland, Oregon these young gents got their start busking on street corners playing traditional old time and bluegrass, eventually honing their sound as a solid dance band playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the west coast.
However, the boys wanted to take the music further and thus, their new original sound was born. Loosely based in the traditions of old time, bluegrass, punk rock, blues, Cajun, and country their sonic creations transcend all musical boundaries. Their authentic songs feature tight 3 part harmonies and powerful instrumentals. This combined with the lightning energy of their stage performances has made them a favorite amongst folk music connoisseurs throughout the US and Europe alike. Their latest record, “Sole Kitchen” (Self-Released 2010) features 13 original works with song contributions from each member of the band. The album was recorded by punk rocker Mike Herrera of MXPX and Tumbledown at his Monkey Trench Studios in Bremmerton, WA.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
