Kentucky-born Sid Griffin and his London-based band the Coal Porters have released their latest album, Turn the water on, boy!, featuring former Byrds member (and longtime pillar of the West Coast bluegrass scene) Chris Hillman. It is now available in stores and through Amazon.
The Coal Porters, who claim to be the first alt.bluegrass band, will launch the album at a free party in London on Wednesday 2 April. Full details are on Sid's website.
That was our original post of 6 March. Sid Griffin now reports that the first pressing of 2,200 copies is completely sold out.
