“Intelligent folk music that defies easy classification.” -Michael Parrish, Dirty Linen
Imagine you’re browsing through an antique store. There’s some junk there, and some flashy, expensive stuff. Then you run across a simple but beautifully designed and finished piece, made entirely by hand. That’s what McCandless’ songs are like. When asked about his influences, he is likely to mention the Dutch painter Peter Brueghel.
