Michael Jerome Browne – The Road is Dark
Michael Jerome Browne takes the road less travelled and leads his listeners on an unforgettable journey into the heart of acoustic blues. Whether he’s gliding a slide across his National guitar, pulling his bow over the fiddle strings to play a lively Cajun
waltz, or frailing away on his gourd banjo, Michael’s passion and virtuosity always shines through. His performances reveal the interconnections of the many cultures and influences that gavebirth to American Roots Music: Gospel, Blues, Old-Time Country, Soul and Cajun. Expect to hear all this and more from a performer who has been called a street-smart archivist and an absolute treasure.
Joining Michael on this album are John McColgan (washboard), Mighty Popo (acoustic guitar), Steve Marriner (harmonica), Jody Benjamin (acoustic guitar) and Michael Ball (fiddle).
