Chicken on a Raft on Antenna Farm is 1/2 of the band The Moore Brothers (Thom Moore) along with Tommy Carns. The two have a fondness for traditional acapella British folk. They’ve come together to record a cd that features this music in the way it was originally intended.
Here’s a blurb from their bio explaining the project better then I ever could:
Their debut album is a collection of American Traditionals, ballads, and popular tunes that have passed down from generation to generation, each iteration providing it’s own input to the meaning of a lyric and melody. They tell stories of loves lost, political intrigue, and lingering mysteries that are as true and applicable today as when first sung by a long forgotten minstrel.
In an age when it’s not uncommon to have upwards of 15-20 people in a band it’s somewhat refreshing to hear these two voices harmonize together with no other distractions. Not for eveyone of course and thus very brave of Antenna Fram to release this. You can buy this Nov. 14 release here now.
