Already interested in experimental and psychedelic folk, this creaking wheezing music of America's past seemed very much the roots which Timothy was digging for. He bought a banjo and the rest is history...quite literally, as he plays most often in the clawhammer style, a style of playing as old as the instrument itself.
Timothy quickly recruited Stone Breath bandmates Prydwyn and Sarada, along with the occasional talents of RA Campbell and Bob Buckingham, to make the debut CD, "Scarecrow Stuffing." The results are perhaps best described as "the sound of musical cobwebs" (as one reviewer put it).
"Scarecrow Stuffing" surprised us with the warm reception it has received from critics and everyday listeners alike. The Spectral Light & Moonshine Firefly Snakeoil Jamboree's interpretations of traditional ghost songs, murder ballads, and Christian hymns from centuries past, mixed with a few choice originals, sound like the music of a haunted medicine show. Where Gothic Appalachian music meets acid-folk, there you shall find The Spectral Light & Moonshine Firefly Snakeoil Jamboree. See also: Stone Breath.
