Plain an simple: new CD from the Low Country Boys

Thanks to Ivan of the Low Country Boys from the central Ards peninsula of Co. Down (the easternmost part of this island) for the news that the band's fourth and latest CD, Plain an simple, is now out, and available from their website (where you can also download the tracks individually).

Gibson (vocals, banjo, percussion, guitar, strumstick), Ivan (vocals, bass, fiddle, mandolin), and Richard (vocals, dobro, guitar) present fourteen tracks of Ulster Scots, Scots, and old-timey hillbilly gospel music, including two instrumentals ('Tumlin Jack' and 'The old cross cut saw') and a monologue.

The Low Country Boys also have their own blog, a YouTube channel, and a Flickr photo album, are on MySpace, and operate a PA hire system and recording facilities. Oh, yes - and a pleasant, good-looking, and informative website.
