Times Cafe for quite a while.
If you're wondering just where this mystical place is located, it's on this CD. Dave Saunders is a storyteller, and this is a collection of tales about people and events; some real, some fictional, and some halfway in-between, that come from another time and place. There's nostalgia, humor, tragedy and pathos, but not one bit of boredom.
This totally acoustic set will probably fit best into the 'Americana' genre, although Dave himself is as solidly 'Country' as it's possible to be, and despite an abundance of fiddle, dobro, mandolin and on two cuts, 5-string banjo, it doesn't pretend to be Bluegrass.
Dave's roots are planted in the fertile ground of the recitations and talking-blues traditions of the 1940's and 50's. He talks his songs as much as he sings them, and it works just fine. His easy conversational style will make this a great listening experience.
