After three CDs and five years of travelling around the stages of Germany
and Europe, L.BOW GREASE has become a household name on the folk scene.
Appropriately, they call their music “transatlantic folk”,
as they wander lightly through the most different styles, while remaining
firmly rooted in American and Celtic Roots. They are fresh, thoughtful
and they play with virtuosity and a healthy dose of British humour,
always looking for new limits.
Dave Jackson wrote, among other things, the world hit “Blame
it on the Boogie“ for Michael Jackson. Guntmar Feuerstein wrote
and sang his way into the German charts wit the 80’s pop band
first two CDs “Pickin' on the Porch“
(2005) and “Greased Lightning“
(2007) are packed full like a trunk ready for a long trip to a lonely
island. Cracking blues numbers, sentimental love songs, tongue-in-cheek
music hall numbers, old time tunes and moving folk songs. Supported
by a string of skilled guest musicians out of the bluegrass and irish
folk scene evolved theese two fascinating acoustic albums.
third CD, “Let’s call it Home“
(ruhrfolk 4005), has been released in 2009 on which, alongside the trusted
regular line-up, numerous guest musicians can be heard such as Nils
Tuxen (Texas Lightning), Andrew Cadie (Broom Bezzums), Chris Hall und
Hartmut Hegewald (Cajun Roosters), as well Matthias Malcher and Ulli
Sieker (Looping Brothers).
L.BOW GREASE presented their new album on their 30-day “Let’s
call it Home“ – Tour 2009. As well as concerts all across
Germany, there were also six appearances in England and Scotland on
the tour plan, including the Cornish Bluegrass Festival in Newquay,
the Dunbar Traditional Music Festival and the Moniaive Bluegrass Festival.
L.BOW GREASE are “back to the roots“, and they give each
of their songs convincing authenticity with their seemingly effortless
virtuosity and their fantastic voices.
