Now Booking The Jake Leg Stompers early down and dirty blues

In northern Mississippi, just beyond the Delta's edge, there is hoodoo in the hills, and the musics that thrive there have roots so deep their tendrils touch the shores of western Africa. These are living blues; hypnotic rhythms that wind themselves into mi∂bius strips of irresistible and perpetual motion. In the hill country, the dancing always goes till dawn.

Hoping to share in the vast riches of this flourishing soundscape, the Jake Leg Stomeprs left their beloved Bucksnort, Tennessee, and made their way to Como, Mississippi, home of Jimbo Mathus' Delta Recording Service. There in the heart of the hill country, the Stompers sought to braid their chicken-fried, hokum-billy blues together with the haunting sounds of some of the area's most outstanding musical artists. Hill Country Hoodoo tells the tale of their search.Living Blues (p.48) - "[P]lain good. It is an outlandish ruckus-raising love letter to the chicken-fried music of the north Mississippi hill country."
