The Moon Trotters, a two man/two woman ensemble, jam together on this new 13-song self-titled disc. Luke Barnhill (vocals, guitar, fiddle, and cajón), Victor Furtado (banjo), Isabella Gorman (fiddle), and Lauren Wasmund (vocals) tackle some new compositions like “Victor Vindaloo,” “Gypsy Queen,” “Do You Believe In Ghosts?,” “Mississippi Pearl,” and “It Takes One To Know One.” The quartet also does some fine picking on the traditional tunes “Breaking Up Christmas,” “Richmond,” “Durang’s Hornpipe,” and “Julianne Johnson.” Seasoned musicians Danny Knicely (guitar), Nate Leath (fiddle, guitar, mandolin, percussion, vocals), Tom Mindte (harmony vocals), and Mark Schatz (bass, feet, and hambone) bring some tasteful musical seasoning to this band of fresh faces.
