The six tracks showcase a style distilled from the great hillbilly, honkytonk and western swing acts of the early 20th century with hints of jug band, Dixieland and country blues also getting a nod. The recording retains the warmth and character of the band’s vintage sound and energetic live shows.
The sweet country twang of three distinct vocalists and songwriting styles blend seamlessly against a back drop of steel guitar, slappin’ bass, tenor banjo and the rattle of the washboard.
Introduced by a mutual friend who knew they’d be great together, the band formed in early 2017, after realising they shared a common love of early American roots music and vintage instruments.
Band members share a roots music history evolving from Floyd Family Breakdown, Mayhem County Boys and the Sugar Shakers. The Ragtone Ramblers are: Dennis Duigan (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harp), Mitch Humphrys (vocals, archtop guitar, steel guitar, tenor banjo), Paula Hackney (vocals, washboard, tenor banjo and snare), Toby Mellonie (double bass).
