The Bowmans "Southern Sky"

I really missed Folk Alliance this year. I know I said that earlier this week, but it is true. It's hard not to be there when you know your friends are all attending, and now that the tales are being told and the pictures are being posted on Facebook, I am sighing. Oh well, I guess there is always next year. While the crew was working on other Music Fog projects, I kept busy spring cleaning and trying to catch up before the next wave of madness starts as SXSW® is approaching. Hey, I even assembled my Weber grill and cooked out for the very first time this season. Maybe my moodiness is made more so by the music I am listening to.

It is The Bowmans, twins from Davenport, Iowa now living in New York City. Drummer and percussionist Mike Meadows introduced us to them at last year's Folk Alliance in Memphis. They seem to sing with almost one voice, it was magical to watch them, even very first thing in the morning coming aboard the Music Fog bus, as I recall. Last winter, they recorded an album Songs for the Holidays which will be released next year. This past Fall, The Bowmans released their Live at Powerplay Studios, which was recorded in Maur, Switzerland. They head back to Europe for a tour in April. Here are Claire and Sarah with the Fog recording of "Southern Sky," a song you'll find on their self-titled CD, and on the new album.
