“Open Minds”: A New Album from The Ballroom Band

The Ballroom Band is out with a new album called “Open Minds.”  The group is heavily inspired by late 60s & early 70s rock ‘n’ roll and by great concept albums from that period.

Here’s what the critics are saying about this refreshing take on old traditions…

“It´s difficult to believe this ain’t Nashville”
Fatea Magazine (UK)

“ I LOVE this band… want to sit and listen to every word he sings ”
Jo Rae Di Menno – South by Southwest Music Festival (US)

“Honkytonkdängor och countryvalser utan minsta grin i ansiktet”
Håkan Engström- Sydsvenskan

The new album can be purchased here.

Tonight at Södra Teatern at Mosebacken in Stockholm, The Ballroom Band will host a Release Fest. Guests artists include Anna Maria Espinosa, Edith Backlund, Carl Ekerstam, Sara Edin, Carola Andersson, Lotta Andersson & Jesper Lindberg.

Tickets can be purchased here. Free entrance before 21:00.

The folks of AMERICANA will be there & so should you!

Moonshine

While back at home a few weeks ago, I had a swig or two of some moonshine which gave me the idea to write a post about it….

Moonshine in a Mason Jar

Moonshine is the name given to illicit distilled alcohol which was traditionally made in the Appalachian Mountains of the U.S.  Moonshine takes it’s name from its clandestine production by the light of the moon.

Moonshine is also called white lightning, mountain dew, hooch, ‘shine and white whiskey by locals who make it. In other countries, it is known by many other names.

There’s a simple, straight-up way to make moonshine. It’s illegal and you can go to prison for making it in the U.S., but here’s how it’s done…

 

Simplicity also carries through in the taste, as moonshine is a clean drink…strong and perhaps lethal in some ways, but clean.

You can learn more about modern-day moonshiners here.

Buy a legal version of the real thing here.

Or even wear cologne named after moonshine! Buy it here.

Woolrich

 

Started in 1830 by English immigrant John Rich, Woolrich is one of America’s quality outdoor clothing brands.  Rich began producing wool & wool products in Plum Run, Pennsylvania and sold his goods to men working in nearby lumber camps.  Later, in 1845, Woolrich built a new mill next to a reliable water source, and quickly the community grew into Woolrich, Pennsylvania, home of the company’s headquarters today.

Over the years, Woolrich has kept up with society’s changing needs for clothing, producing lumberjack clothes, golf knickers, wool bathing suits, hunting clothes and robes worn by drivers during the early days of the automobile. Woolrich even claims to have been the first company to use a zipper in men’s trousers.

Like many other classic work and outdoor brands, Woolrich has been a long-time contractor of the U.S. Government.  During the Civil War, the company was commissioned to make blankets for Union soldiers.  In the early 1940s, the U.S. government contracted Woolrich to outfit Admiral Byrd on his expeditions to Antarctica.

Today the company concentrates on producing high-performance outdoor wear, as well as maintaining an emphasis on its legendary items.  Enduring classics still produced by the company today include the railroad vest and the buffalo check shirt.
