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.
