Local 913, Episode 18: The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers
Coming from Washington County, The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers were recommended by WYEP's Sunday night Bluegrass Jam Session host Bruce Mountjoy. The relatively new band featuring Gary Antol, Libby Eddy, Mitch Hall and Ed Croft, hail from the mountains and river towns of southwestern PA, West Virginia, and Ohio. Bruce Mountjoy talks a little more about why he likes the group, who has a new Bluegrass record, The Lane Change. The first track on The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers new album is The Legend of Gandy Grey, which catches the ear immediately. For more on The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers, check out their website.
