Joseph Allred continues to prove themselves as being one of the most imaginative and skilled artists in folk-inspired music today with their new song, “Sweetcorn Ramble,” from their upcoming LP, The Rambles & Rags of Shiloh.
The record, which comes out July 1 on Worried Songs and is available for preorder today, is a truly outstanding collection of instrumental string pieces that lean heavily into a vast array of folk and blues traditions.
From solo guitar dance tunes to nimble banjo fantasias, Allred channels the myths, people and history of the small rural Appalachian town of Shiloh, Tennessee, a storied place that the musician’s father’s family had been deeply rooted in for the last few hundred years. You can truly feel the echoes of past generations clapping and dancing jigs to songs like “Sweetcorn Ramble,” especially in Allred’s newly filmed at-home performance of the track. Check it out below:
Rustic, genuine and always rich with heart and soul, Allred is once again in top form here and across the entire new LP. Click here to preorder your copy from Worried Songs on vinyl or digital today.
