Hats off to Uncle Earl’s “Waterloo, Tennessee” tour!

Make that “Hats on!”

Fiber artist, Carrie Cahill Mulligan assists Uncle Earl with cd sales at Club Passim during the New England portion of their "Waterloo, Tennessee" tour.

I was lucky enough to catch the band during their spring tour in support of their new album,”Waterloo, Tennessee,” released on Rounder Records last month.

Produced by John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin fame), this second album does a great job capturing the exuberance and energy that characterize the g’Earls’ live performances.

I love handmade things: hats, pies, furniture and especially stringband music. If you have the chance to catch Uncle Earl live at a festival this summer, do it!

Until then, check out “Waterloo, Tennessee”. You’ll be happy you did.
