Old time music, as we as a band understand it, constitutes a vast continuum of regional styles, individual musical approaches and intermingling cultural influences. This continuum stretches back beyond the history of recorded music, and yet, in it's current incarnation, draws largely from early American recordings; there is a huge body of these, both in the form of early "hillbilly" records, and also a seemingly bottomless well of field recordings and other ethnographic material.  As a band we have come to appreciate the more archaic styles and sounds that lie just beyond the hiss of the older or non-commercial recordings. In making this album, however, our goal is not to create a museum piece of meticulously recreated selections, but to honour the players of old while inevitably adding our own touch to the music. While many of the tunes we have chosen come from West Virginia, the album also represents players we love from Texas, North Carolina, the Ozark Mountains and Kentucky. It is our hope that this project will convey the great sense of joy we feel discovering and playing tunes together!

We have chosen to record 'Shanghai' in a rural setting, Stateside, over a five day period. Our costs include transportation, food, recording, mixing and mastering, and of course printing and packaging the final project.

We are excited to be working with our friend Ben Townsend (The Fox Hunt, Iron Leg Boys, Hackensaw Boys) as our recording engineer for this project. 

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to have the record ready to sell by the first week of August, 2014 so as to showcase it at the Appalachian Stringband Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia. So we have a relatively short window of time in which to achieve a lot. Other challenges include finding a suitable (and affordable) location to record the tunes, writing detailed liner notes on each tune source, and designing the actual packaging of the record. The excitement and enthusiasm that this project has generated within the band, coupled with crucial financial support from our community of friends, family, and musicians, will be more than adequate to carry us through.
