The new, debut Bowhunter album was released on August 11 at Square Dance Kalamazoo's monthly dance at Bells Brewery! The band consists of Laurel Premo (of Red Tail Ring) on fiddle and banjo, Michael Beauchamp (of Red Tail Ring) on guitar, Sam Herman (of MANY of old time bands) on banjo, and Sam Cooper on fiddle. The album features traditional and original fiddle tunes that we play at dances as well as a few ballads with sweet harmony singing. The full version of the album (available in physical disc & on digital download from Earthwork Music) includes jokes and other commentary between a few tunes. The iTunes digital version is stripped down - simply the tunes with nothing else. We invite you to choose your own adventure. The two Sam’s from the Bowhunter string band were interviewed on WMUK in Kalamazoo for the release of our album, "The Right Hands Round." You can check out the interview here:
