Michael Carpenter and The Banks Brothers
The Sydney traditional country ensemble, Michael Carpenter and The Banks Brothers, returns with their 3rd full length album, this time a bonafide sidestep into authentic, acoustic bluegrass tunes. Both respectful of the traditions of the genre, but with the band’s unique spin on this music they love. With a great mix of uptempo classics, including the singles ‘Road Man’, ‘If You’d Have Told Me’ and ‘Torn Piece of Paper’, memorable instrumentals and beautiful mid tempo tunes, including the duet with Melody Moko on ‘Leaving Nowhere’, the album showcases a band truly revelling in what they’re doing, and just getting warmed up!
