Dusty Ravens - Ranchero Valeroso

Dusty Ravens - Ranchero Valeroso
Dusty Ravens formed in 2012 around the singing and guitar playing of Andy Meehan who is joined by the singing, tenor & french horn, and mellophone playing of Maggie Raven. Their music is based around a mutual obsession with Mexico, a fondness for country and a healthy tolerance of folk.

Dusty Ravens are:
Andy Meehan (vocals, guitar)
Maggie Raven (vocals, mellophone, french horn, tenor horn, guitar)
Kim Griffin (trumpet & bits and pieces)
Mark Hetherington (drums)
Alex Lange (bass)

Their debut album gives a nod to a few things mainly orbiting close to, or South of, the border: Mexican mariachi, alt country, folk, snippets of flamenco. The album’s engineer described them as Johnny Cash meets Tom Waits, which the band were more than happy with, though maybe some of Willie Nelson's closer to the border moments is a bit nearer the mark than Johnny Cash.

About this track...

Another story in an album of stories, this song tells of a ranchero (the title means brave/valiant farmer) who refuses to participate in a civil war. The trumpets and gut string guitar give away the Spanish and Mexican snippets in the album without ramming them down your throat.
