"Country Blues" is the first recording by the Nob Hill Boys. Released in 1999, it features the original lineup of the band as a quartet. Len Springer appears as guest fiddler on a number of cuts. The CD has a nice mixture of standards, originals and a few tunes featuring John Fabke's clawhammer banjo playing.
"If you thrill to acoustic
American music that
cuts close to the bone, you
want this CD, it's a gem."
- The Isthmus, Madison, WI
Traditional bluegrass. Sweet harmonies and tender pickin'. In their first year together, the Nob Hill Boys were nominated for a WAMI Award (Wisconsin Area Music Industry), and were finalists in the 1999 SPBGMA International Band Contest in Nashville. The combined performance experience of the members of the Nob Hill Boys covers impressive territory -- from the Village Gate in New York City and Bunji's Folk Cellar in London to festivals in West Virginia and Ashland, Wisconsin. Audiences love the Nob Hill Boys for their ability to capture the sound and soul of bluegrass music. As many fans have said - "they do it right."
