Biography

It takes courage to release the security of the familiar and embrace change. After five years of touring and establishing themselves as "the most important folk group to emerge from Boston since the early 60's", Crooked Still announced that cellist Rushad Eggleston would leave the group in November of 2007. The band that had been drawing invitations from huge events like the ... Read more in Amazon's Crooked Still Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal! June 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
this is the best new picking I've heard in a long, long time. if you have not heard of crooked still, mark my words, you will, because they are just now on the 1st step of a long, long, bluegrass escalator into the stars. i recommend listening to this album while: driving up highway 1 between big sur and monterey, drinking copious amounts of honey wine, having a picnic with your shoes off, grilling italian sausages, reading ann landers, backcountry skiing, water-skiing, on a pier by a blue lake with your feet dangling in the water.

a beautiful combination of traditional music and fetching, talented contemporary soundstuff. everything about the crooked still sound gels and i put it right up there with the telluride bluegrass sessions in my all-time favorite category. lovely stuff. beatiful work. welcome to the world crooked still!

5.0 out of 5 stars Other worldly Mountain Music transcends Bluegrass February 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Other worldly harmonies, haunting female vocals. Crooked Still lies somewhere on the other side of Bluegrass and Folk. Guess you could say they transcend Bluegrass. Much like Nickel Creek, Crooked Still blazes a new trail down in the lower range of traditional Mountain Music. We live up the mountain from Doc Watson and plan on seeing them at MerleFest in April. If you ever get their interpretation of Gillian Welch's Orphan Girl in your head you're in trouble my friend. Thanks Crooked Still. I for one am glad you took this fork in the music world instead of the classical one you were on. Go ahead, and buy this CD you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACTUALLY , THERE SHOULD BE A 10 STAR RATING FOR THIS BAND November 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I HAD THE GREAT PLEASURE OF SEEING CROOKED STILL 4 TIMES AT THE OCT 2005 MAGFEST IN LIVE OAK, FL. AS THE PRIVIOUS RATER SAID, THIS IS A BAND ON THE VERGE OF GREATNESS. THE CD IS WONDERFUL, WITH AOIFE,S WINSOME VOICE & RUSHAD'S INCREDIBLE CELLO PLAYING. THE OTHER 2 MEMBERS DOC, THE BANJO PLAYER & COREY, THE DOUBLE BASSIST WERE GREAT ALSO. AOIFE'S VOICE HAS TOUCHES OF ALLISON KRAUSS & MARIA MULDAR IN IT, BUT IS REALLY ALL HER OWN. AS WONDERFUL AS THEIR CD IS, IT IS NOTHING TO COMPARE TO THERE LIVE PERFORMANCES. I HOPE YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR AOIFE SING "COME INTO MY KITCHEN" & TO WATCH RUSHAD'S ANTICS AS HE PLAYS. (IF YOU EVER SEE HIM, ASK HIM ABOUT "i shot the squid & ate my son" ) AOIFE, DOC & COREY HAVE TO WATCH RUSHAD CLOSELY AT THE END OF EACH SONG AS HE FINISHES IT HIS WAY & DIFFERENTLY EACH TIME. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM MANY TIMES NEXT YEAR (ALREADY HAVE TICKETS TO SEE THEM IN HARRISBURG, PA IN FEB 2006) & YOU SHOULD PLAN TO ALSO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative bluegrass at its best! December 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's absolutely amazing what this band can do with a hundred-year old song.

I was fortunate to catch Crooked Still promoting this debut CD at the 2006 Grey Fox Bluegrass festival in upstate New York. The audience seemed to be in awe. All the buzz was about them, and the line to buy one of their CDs was too long for me to wait in. I bought from CDBaby instead. (I got even luckier when I caught them in Madision, CT 4 months later, bought a second copy, and conversed with the band.)

I'd describe them as alternative bluegrass. The bluesy tunes are the most alluring for me. Listen to Last Fair Deal and Old Virginia on CDBaby - the long sound clip captures a beautiful cello solo, a wonderful double bass, an artful backround banjo, and good samples of lead singer/band leader Aiofe O'Donvan's sweet yet sultry voice. For more fun, listen to Angeline the Baker, Orphan Girl, Lulu Gal, Shady Grove, and of course, Hop High. And there's the rest... actually, there is not one bad song on this CD, so sample them all!

I would not purchase a used CD if you can afford not to; this band may not make the top 40 (like all bluegrass, unfortunately), but the band members deserve the credit for their talent - buy it new so they can get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the bowed bass (and cello) February 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the first bluegrass-flavored music I've ever heard that goes wild in the lower registers.

Being on the other side of the big ocean, we only get info of new groups through a limited number of channels. I am very lucky that CD Baby informed me that this title was available. Great music, a lot of folk, part bluegrass, part pop. Great combination. Add the good looks from Aoife and you have all ingredients to sell this album. I realise that a live show in Europa is far from realistic, but i think there shows to be awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars HELL YEAH August 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Wow... I grew up with old skool country in the 60's... and the flavour of this music is incredibly refreshing, combining the old skool feeling with Crooked Still's original sound (love the cello!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Why does Amazon have two seperate prices for this? December 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Okay, wonderful band. Saw them in concert. The Doc who plays banjo is...a little eccentric, probably on purpose. But once they started playing, it was delicious.

With that said, WHY DOES AMAZON HAVE IT LISTED FOR BOTH $6.99 *AND* $9.99?? Who would seriously buy the 9.99 version simply because it's from a later edition CD? They are the exact same thing!

WHY AMAZON WHY??

Anyway, buy it--but get the 6.99 version.

They are an extremely talented group, I did not like them as much as The Wailin Jennys or Tim Obrien. They are however Outstanding.

It's not my favorite progressive Bluegrass album, or even my favorite Crooked Still album. None of the songs jump out at me. None are bad, though. It's listenable.
