The Freight Hoppers' second album, Where'd You Come From, Where'd You Go, is exhilarating in its sense of too many things happening at once and yet managing to cohere. You wouldn't expect an all-acoustic, drummer-less band to produce rocking, high-energy music, but that's just what this quartet from the Smokey Mountains does. Two Appalachian natives (banjoist/singer Frank Lee and guitarist/singer Cary Fridley) coupled up with two outsiders (Cleveland fiddler David Bass and Danish bassist Hanne Jørgensen) to create a band that knocks the dust off the tradition and pushes it at a relentless pace. Most of the material comes from such old-time legends as Tommy Jarrell, Uncle Dave Macon, Fiddlin' John Carson, Clarence Ashley, the Coon Creek Girls, and Doc Watson, but the Freight Hoppers claim it as their own. --Geoffrey Himes

By David Messer on January 31, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Old time music played the way it should be - with passion and finesse but still nice and rough sounding. David Bass's fiddle is beyond impressive, but the band as a whole really cooks. They're so tight and rockin' that it's easy to forget that there's no drummer here. An antidote to an encroaching slickness in a lot of contemporary bluegrass.

Rock solid rythm, powerful fiddling, impressive vocals, and an energetic presentation brings these tunes soaring to life. Irresistable dance tunes and bone chiilling ballads are done with equal skill and intensity. The problem of old-time music losing it's punch in recorded form simply does not exist here.

I can vouch for what the other reviewers have written: this is a totally fantastic disc. I'm a big fan of this kind of music and this is as good as it gets. A banjo playing friend of mine told me that the Freighthoppers got so good because they were hired by a railroad company to play for its employees. Whether that's true or not, it adds to the lore and the band certainly sound like they've been playing for railroad folks. The band is really tight and the music has a strong energy. So buy it already!

If you like good, hard-pickin, toe-tappin, old-timey tunes, this album has it all and won't disappoint you.
And there's something about them that never gets tiring after listening to their music lots of times.
I've even had the pleasure of dancing to their live music -- they really have a gift for making music that fills you with energy and gets you on your feet to join right in.
