Eddie From Ohio - one of my favorites!

Recommended Posts

First off, Eddie From Ohio is not from Ohio! This group of 4 hails from Virginia - you can read about their name and lots of other great info on their website: www.eddiefromohio.com. You also can sample a couple of their songs there. (Click on the Quick album and listen to the title song - its a good representation of their music.)

I first heard them when I was living in Atlanta - they tour extensively and are a lot of fun live. They're one of those bands that hasn't made it to the "mainstream" but have a large, dedicated fan base. Calling them a folk band is limiting the scope of their music but its the best name I can put on it. They describe themsleves as "Folkin' Excellent!" :googly:

The music is lyrically driven and has great acoustic instrumentation - bongos, harmonica, guitars, vocal harmonies, etc. Check them out - you won't be dissappointed! Anyone else heard them and have anything to add?

Shweet band!! If you like the more instrumental folk stuff, check out Gaelic Storm and Oysterband. Another great artist you should check out is Ani DiFranco. Her vocals are very energetic and she has insanely fast fingerpicking guitar skills. :guitar:
