Does the band's sound a bit frustrated about the one horse town they're in? Or is it just about the day jobs and lack of freedom? It was a pretty rocking local folk show on Pure Guelphishness on CFRU at 9:00am this morning, featuring this local act.
Because they are appearing at 2rivers festival on June 15, 2013, it seemed a perfect time to give you a chance to hear their music from bandcamp and myspace. I also read the bio from their facebook page. The Ragged Bankers have been influenced by Neil Young, Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen and Blue Rodeo as you can hear in the music. The first song played today was selected as Tune of Day on Folkway Music's Music blog in June 2010. The band features Folkway Music’s own Mark Stutman on electric guitar!
