New CD from Ulster gospel band

The Low Country Boys, a gospel bluegrass/ old-time trio from the central Ards peninsula of Co. Down, Northern Ireland, have released their fourth CD, Plain an simple. The album is available from their website, where tracks can also be downloaded and bought individually.

The Low Country Boys - who take their band name from the 'Low Country', as their home area is called - present fourteen tracks of Ulster Scots, Scots, and old-timey hillbilly gospel music, including two instrumentals ('Tumlin Jack' and 'The old cross cut saw') and a monologue. They compose original material in the Ulster Scots language.

The Low Country Boys also have their own blog, a YouTube channel, and a Flickr photo album, and are on MySpace.
