I DRAW SLOW, “White Wave Chapel,” Pinecastle. 13 tracks.
Siblings Dave and Louise Holden form the heart of this five-piece band from Dublin, Ireland.
They wrote all 13 tracks on the album.
She sings lead and he plays guitar.
The band, which includes Adrian Hart on fiddle, Colin Derham on clawhammer banjo and Konrad Liddy on double bass, was formed in 2008.
Its first American album, “Redhills,” was a big hit with bluegrass fans in 2012.
“White Wave Chapel,” which debuts July 8, should continue the streak.
It’s described as Appalachian roots music with an Irish edge –a blend of alt-country, folk, old-time, bluegrass and Americana.
The lyrics are poetry set to music.
They don’t really tell a story as much as create a mystery — and a beautiful sound.
I Draw Slow is currently touring the United States as part of a world tour that’s taken them to Germany, Denmark and Belgium.
