Bluegrass Unlimited Reviews Man About A Horse

Here’s a teaser:

While all ten cuts are a pleasure, not to be missed are “A Few Hundred Miles,” which mentions the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Carolina hills and is perhaps the most bluegrassy; “Frankford Junction,” a satisfying train song; “You Can Never Go Home Again,” a story song; and a done-me-wrong song, “You Don’t Return My Tenderness,” and a “leaving” song, “Grieve, Cry, And Moan.” It’s all there, folks.

Man About A Horse & Damn Tall Buildings

Had a great show last night in Philly at the Tin Angel.


What a great show last night! This was my first big show with Man About A Horse, and I was pleased to reunite with Damn Tall Buildings for a killer double bill!…

I’ve started playing some shows with Philly’s own folk/bluegrass sensation, Man about a Horse. Not only are these guys fantastic people, but also they’re phenomenal musicians. It’s a treat to play with them!

Check them out on Facebook or download their EP!
We’re playing again this Friday (June 5th) at Vesper from 8-11.

This is happening right now at Vesper! 'Man About A Horse' killing it on stage and the evening is still very young! Come join us and get your dance on!
