The rather oddly named (to our ears anyway) Pappy evokes images of preachers, ramblin’ gamblers and whiskey stills draped over Appalachian Mountains acoustic guitar and fiddles. His banjo figures largely into this 12-song record titled Pappy Time, but this is not a bluegrass album. Not entirely.

The performances are low-key and understated, but the musicianship is of the highest order – laidback, never-in-a-rush songs, with Pappy’s emotive vocals blanketed by acoustic guitar and a pedal steel mimicking a train whistle. A group of songs that share the load, carrying on a tradition as old as the hills but as new each coming morning.

The album is out on 16th November. Pre-order via iTunes here.
