(recorded at Beehive Productions Studio in Saranac Lake, New York)
Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp formed the duo Red Tail Ring with the idea of reinterpreting traditional folk and creating new music with a clawhammer spirit. Their sound is something of a folk-fusion formed by pulling themes from blues, old-time, mountain music and other traditions into a contemporary acoustic mix. The pair like to create their new music without modern influences – going as far as to write on a typewriter.
The Kalamazoo, Michigan-based pair is fresh off their fourth full-length studio release, 'Fall Away Blues,' featuring new songwriting fused with old-time and country blues themes, and they brought their new-old sound to Saranac Lake, New York, for exclusive Folk Alley performances captured by Beehive Productions.
