The Ghost Truckers bring their brand of truck-based twangy roots rock back to the Somerville Porchfest. Aslo this year, we have Tad Overbaugh opening with a set of country tinged rock originals and covers.
Have you ever wondered what a band drawing heavily from "Rumors"-era Fleetwood Mac, Lucinda Williams, Big Star, and even some "Exile on Main Street"-era Rolling Stones might sound like? Even if you haven't, you have to admit that this a potentially amazing mix, yes? We take you to the place where love has died and then we sit at the bar with you and write songs about it--but melodic and catchy songs. Some other recent highlights include our nomination for a 2018 and 2019 Boston Music Award in the "Best Country Act" category, as well as making it to the semi-finals in Boston's famed "Rock & Roll Rumble".
