With eight albums, thousands of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it?s no surprise they have two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. From their origins in Portland, Oregon?s vibrant underground roots music scene in the late 90s, Foghorn have spread the old-time string band gospel all over the world. This is the kind of bubbling musical brew which first intoxicated the American mainstream back in the day. They are rightly celebrated for their down home, foot stomping, ass-kickin? brand of old time music, with some Cajun and honky-tonk thrown in for good measure. With fiery fiddle, rapidfire mandolin, a rock steady rhythm section and great harmonies, this band draws on French-Canadian influences as well as roots in the South and West of the USA.
