The Acoustics

The Acoustics have something very special going on, something that is at once familiar and new, traditional and contemporary in roots music today. Framed with the seasoned bones of Al Spoto’s accordion chops, the addition of nephew Enzo Spoto brought the grace and insight of the singer songwriter to the fore along with the beautifully layered refrains of Uncle Al’s wonderful phrasing. Adding both Bonnie Bell on violin and the strong sweet pipes of Ally Jed was a no brainier as they add all the colours of the rainbow tonight (sans bass and drums) to what is a stunning portrait of roots-based Canadiana.
Something always good cooking at Barber Shop Podcast, something good indeed.
