Reeltime Travelers

It's not that often you can just read the name of a band and know that it will fit in just fine with the Lonesomemusic's ethos of a little bit folk, a little bit country, a whole lot of sadness. I can't even remember how I came across them, I just saw the name and sought them out. They didn't disappoint either, it's mostly instrumental hoe-down music that gathers speed in a whirl of fiddle and mandolin. It's a funny kind of maudlin, a mix of nostalgia and moonshine.
